"We need to save the Arctic not because of the polar bears, and not because it is the most beautiful place in the world, but because our very survival depends on it."
- Lewis Gordon Pugh
Bears used to roam most continents, but because of habitat loss and hunting, some bear populations have reached a critical point.
Polar bears, for example, were listed as a threatened species in the US under the Endangered Species Act in May 2008 due to the loss of their sea ice habitat resulting from climate change.
