The Sea Ice is Melting!

By Ellison, Gideon, and Ajai

The Issue: The degradation of sea ice habitats is a huge problem for polar bears. Without sea ice, polar bears can't hunt or give birth. But there are ways we can help.

Save the sea ice! Save the polar bears! Save all the animals and their habitats!
