don't mind the penguin part


They live in cold places and hunt seals from the water And they're fur is built for the freezing cold and helps them survive


How do polar bears help the arctic

Polar bears help by killing and eating seals, when they are done or full they usually leave some of the seal left for the other weak animals who can't hunt to eat the rest

arctic food chain

four organisms

shrimps, fish, seals and polar bears

Limiting factors

due to climate the ice melts and there is not that much space to find seals on ice

ice is melting due to climate and with the ice melting the polar bears and other animals don't have space to live.

the seals in the arctic are reducing because the climate is melting the ice and the seals can't be found easily. The arctic need seals so the polar bears can eat them and leave some for the weak animals
