Transcript

  • 1. Endangered Animals Of The Poles.
  • 2. All the species living at the poles are inter related. When you see a Polar bear, you see a whole food chain along with it.
  • 3. Apart from Fuzzy Bears These
  • 4. And Feathery Royals...
  • 5.
    • Earth's polar environments host rich webs of plants and animals that face the change in clime, and are endangered.
    • Some of such endangered species are featured here …
  • 6. Walrus
  • 7.
    • Walrus are called the bottom feeders, and are in trying times because of the melting ice that deplete the seafloor food, algae .
  • 8. SITTING DUCK
  • 9.
    • Another animal that could see problems as food on the sea floor decreases is the spectacled eider an Arctic sea duck .
  • 10. Polar Bear.
  • 11.
    • Polar Bear is one of the Arctic mammals most sensitive to climate change, because of their reliance on a sea ice habitat.
  • 12.
    • And the Seal, that is fast reducing in quantity as the ice melts, makes life tough for the Bears….
  • 13.
    • As the polar bears depend on Seals entirely for their food.
  • 14. SAND FLEAS OF THE SEAS
  • 15.
    • The sand flea, lives in the water just below the sea ice and depends on the ice's microscopic inhabitants as its source of food & are at risk as temperatures rise .
  • 16. PRETTY PLANKTON:
  • 17.
    • Diatoms (Planktons) are fast declining as the water under the ocean in the poles are getting warmer which is bad other living things that depend on them for food.
  • 18. KRILL KILL
  • 19. They are the principal food source for many animals krill is apparently the key species of populations declining heavily that depend on sea ice
  • 20.
      • When the ice disappears, so do they.
    Adélie penguins Elephant seals
  • 21. Limpet Snail Sea Star Have very thin Shells.
  • 22.
    • The dissolved CO2 makes the water in the ocean more acidic hindering the development of shells for these creatures, and they are at high risk.
  • 23.
    • Although it is inevitable that some flora and fauna will go extinct in the coming years, as the climate gets warmer….
  • 24.
    • Experts agree that the poles will not become a dead zone. There will still be life, but the residents will be different ….
  • 25.
    • And we shall get accustomed to it. That’s a different story… if we cant stop the melting ice/raising temperatures, at least we can/MUST try to delay/postpone it..
