"Where's home? What's happening Momma?"

Acrylic on Canvas, 8"x7",  by Anita Badami

This beautiful animal, the world's largest land carnivore-the Polar Bear, faces threat of extinction due to Global Warming. The rising temperature is melting its habitat, the Arctic sea ice, fast. Adapted to freezing temperatures, the Polar bear can't live on land all the time, because it overheats quickly when running. Sea ice during summer is critically important because Polar bears use ice pack (floating ice) as a platform to hunt ringed seals, their primary food source. And, these seals are found commonly on solid ice. 

If the emission of green house gases is slowed down and eventually stopped, the ongoing loss of Arctic sea ice could be stopped and our Polar bears could be saved. Lets hope for the best...
