Seals Put On The Endangered Species List

| Filed under: Sea CreaturesEndangered

seals

Since there are two species of seals that depend on sea ice to survive, the federal government has decided to place these two species on the endangered species list.

There have been major climate change going on, which in turn melts the sea ice.

Even though, Ringed seals, one of the species, have a large population, the entire population is dependent on sea ice, which is disappearing.

Since these seals have evolved on the ice, it is very unlikely that they will be able to survive on the shore. It is too much of a change for them to get used to so quickly.

It is not only seals that are being effected by the climate changing, so let's do what we can to help!!
