WWF's Geoff York on @MotherNatureNet "If there is no ice, there will be no polar bears"

In my more than 20 years as a biologist studying the Arctic, I’ve seen the sea ice changes first-hand. These changes are having a direct impact on the health and well-being of Arctic animals and people. Polar bears, a species near and dear to my heart, are greatly threatened. They now have less time on the ice to hunt and build up their fat stores, forcing them to spend more time fasting on land. I co-authored a recent study that shows that sea ice loss is causing polar bears in some regions to swim longer distances to find stable ice or to reach land, creating greater risk to their health. Put simply, if there is no ice, there will be no polar bears.
