WHITE PLANET

THIN ICE AND ENDANGERED ANIMALS

Polar bear
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.

Beluga whale
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 creatures.

Beluga whale are slow-swimming mammals and mainly feed on fish.

Narwhal whale
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.

Arctic fox
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.

Wolverine
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 habitat.

The White Planet DVD is released by Optimum on 3rd November 2008 - A fabulous film documenting the lives of many of these endangered animals.
