Global Warming Is The Biggest Threat Manitoba Polar Bears Are Facing

Manitoba is a province that is known for its polar bears. The population of polar bears in Manitoba is the highest in Canada and the world. Manitoba is known for its cold climate, perfect for polar bears, but with the increase in temperatures and the melting of the ice, polar bears face a tough time surviving.

The Manitoba government was able to realize the problem and take action. “By proclaiming The Polar Bear Protection Act and listing polar bears as threatened under The Endangered Species Act, we are providing for both the conservation and sustainability of the polar bears in Manitoba.” The Manitoba government took this decision in the hopes that it would help protect all of the polar bears in Manitoba. Still, the problem is getting larger and larger as climate change and global warming are getting worse with every passing day.

“Unfortunately, this is a massive experiment we’re doing. If the year-round ice goes away, entire ice-dependent ecosystems will collapse, and something new will begin,” said Robert Newton, a research scientist at Columbia University’s Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory.

The warming of the continent is a severe problem that Manitoba is facing. If the issue isn’t solved, scientists and researchers predict that polar bears will not make it to the end of this century. Manitoba polar bears will be extinct before the 22nd century. “I always feel like global warming and climate change are just existing problems. Now that this is happening directly in Manitoba, they feel real. This is a huge problem,” said a Manitoban and a citizen of Churchill City.

Moreover, serious actions must be taken for Manitoba to be able to save its polar bears from extinction. Manitobans must increase the measures taken to protect polar bears and many other arctic animals.
