Endangered Species of the Arctic Ocean

  • Polar Bears travel across the snow and ice in search for food. Sometimes they swim have to swim out to sea to find food. Over-hunting and the melting of the ice caps are threats to these sea mammals.
  • The bowhead whale is an exclusive whale species that only inhabits arctic waters. It's population was almost decimated by whalers. It is estimated that only 450 whales endure today.
