Global warming is the Polar Bear's enemy.
Do you understand the word "global warming"? Global warming happens when the Earth's temperature goes up. The Polar Bear is in trouble because of global warming, and as the Earth's temperature increases, the sea ice in which the Polar Bear lives on will melt.

The ice melts and it can't find any food...
The Polar Bear lives by catching seals and other animals from on top of the sea ice. Now, the ocean doesn't freeze as much as before so the Polar Bear can't find food and its numbers are starting to become smaller. Global warming is not easy to stop, but we must cut down on garbage production and practice energy conservation.
