Polar Bear mum and cubs relax on an ice floe.

The sea ice is shrinking at an alarming rate, which has a huge impact for the bears as this is their main hunting ground. More and more bears are being found to have drowned while trying to find the ice, even though they can swim up to sixty miles or so!

I hope the ice does not completely vanish and that they always have somewhere to hunt!
