The polar bear is the world’s largest non-aquatic carnivore. It is the most mobile of all four-legged creatures, with activity areas larger than Montana. Polar bears hunt marine mammals from the surface of the sea ice. When ice-absence means they are unable to feed, they can endure a more prolonged fast than any other large mammal. But, there is a limit to how long they can be food deprived, and global warming-induced sea ice declines have been linked to reduced body condition, poorer survival, and declining abundance. Their dependence on habitat that melts as temperature rises, makes polar bears the best early indicator of threats to the Arctic from anthropogenic global warming. More importantly, they are sentinels of global health, providing advanced warning of challenges coming to all of the species and environments about which we care. Prompt and aggressive greenhouse gas mitigation still can save polar bears over much of their range. We should care about polar bears because if we act in time to save them, we also will save most of the rest of life on earth, and maximize opportunity to leave our children a world similar to that in which humans have flourished.
