“We are truly in a climate crisis right now. We’re talking about species’ disappearance, the impacts of which are felt all around the globe.” The chief scientist at conservation organisation Polar Bears International added: “The loss of sea ice is critical.
“The 13 to 14% a decade decline really constitutes a crisis.
“Over the last 40 years some bears, some populations like this one and one in Alaska, are being significantly affected by sea ice loss. And if we allow the sea ice loss to continue, all the bears will eventually be gone.”
