The polar bear is the world’s largest predator found on land and the
first victim of climate change, primarily because the melting of its sea
ice habitat reduces its ability to find sufficient food. Apparently
polar bears are becoming thinner and reproduction is also lowering. The
polar bear is an incredible hunter and easily move across snow, ice and
open water. Most of its diet is made up of seals.
Pollution is the main threat to this beautiful creature. Known for its
white skin and melon-shaped head, the beluga whale lives in river
estuaries where human-caused pollution is providing significant danger
to their health. Cancer seems to be killing many of these beautiful

The beautiful, incredibly unusual and rarely seen narwhal whale,
distinguished by its long unicorn-like tusk, is one the most vulnerable
of all arctic marine animals due to the change in climate. Also hunted
by polar bears, orcas and humans, the Narwhal is, according to recent
studies, a very vulnerable species.
Narwhals are fast swimmers and mainly feed on cod, squid,
shrimp and halibut.
Also known as the show fox, the artic fox is relentlessly hunted for its
white fur and meat which makes it as one the most threatened animals.
The artic fox feeds mainly on carcasses left behind by large predators
such as polar bears.
The wolverine lives primarily in isolated northern areas (Artic, Alaska,
Canada, Siberia and Scandinavia). Very elusive, the wolverine has had
little contact with man though its fur has long caused it to be at risk
from hunters. Its population is in decline primarily because of loss of
