Polar bears could be extinct by 2100, says heartbreaking new study

If Arctic ice continues to melt at its projected rate, the bears will go extinct due to starvation by the end of the century according to a first-ever projected timeline.

  • Polar bears are dependent on sea ice for hunting seals, a primary component of their diet. As temperatures rise and sea ice continues to shrink it has become increasingly challenging for the carnivores to hunt for food.
  • The Arctic is likely to have warmed more than double the amount of the global average this year compared to pre-industrial temperatures.
