Polar bears

Why they're in trouble: 

Polar bear survival depends on sea ice. As climate change causes Arctic ice to retreat further every year, polar bears are forced to use more energy as they struggle to find denning sites and hunt seals, their primary prey. Less food means less reproductive success and higher mortality rates for the cubs that are born. As top predators, polar bears are also especially vulnerable to accumulated toxins, which can affect their immune systems, growth rates and reproduction.
