Global warming is real, and it's happening all around us, destroying our planet. And although us humans may not feel its effects yet, the animals around us surely do. A news channel recently recorded the footage of a starving polar bear, almost reduced to bones. Polar bears, that primarily consume seals, have the habit of staking out their prey's air hole and wait for the seals to come up for air. However, the ongoing climate conditions have led to the retraction of sea ice, leaving polar bears starving.
Paul Nicklen, a biologist-turned-photographer, who is a part of the channel's team, caught this heartbreaking video on camera and commented on how when caught, the bear seemed to be just hours away from death and there was nothing him or his crew could have done to save the starving animal. For animals like polar bears that depend on the natural environment for their food habits, climate change is causing serious problems.
Unless we do something about it, the situation is not going to change. Let this be a lesson to all to help save the environment while we can. Stay tuned for more updates.
