International Polar Bear Day: warming climate forcing the bear to adopt land-based diet

Feb 27, 2021 12:33 IST | By Editorji News Desk

Global rising temperatures and the melting of Arctic ice has forced polar bears to adopt a land-based diet. They have switched from hunting seals to catching fish, geese and even lemmings, Russian scientists said on the eve of International Polar Bear Day. 

Additionally, the iconic bear species is now using four times more energy to survive because of major ice loss in the Arctic, found a separate study. 

As global warming rises, the already endangered species with a global population of up to 30,000, faces an uncertain future.
