Polar Bear

While I personally feel it's been a mistake to focus some much attention on the polar bear as a symbol of global warming to motivate people that we collectively need to address the problem, the fact remains that the polar bear is indeed threatened by climate change.

WWF estimates that if business-as-usual warming trends continue, the iconic animals could be vulnerable to extinction in the next century.
