ABSTRACT
The article looks at the potential effect of the accelerating loss of the Arctic ice on polar-bear population. Many experts on the region believe that global warming is causing the ice to melt. Rising global temperatures are also changing the geography of its coastline. The World Conservation Union gave polar bears threatened status in May 2006, projecting a decline by the middle of the century.
