How are seals affected by climate change?



  1. 0 Votes

    Seal populations have definitely felt the harsh realities of climate change. The melting ice caps have affected the ecology of our oceans and in turn the seals’ sources of food. With no food and a decrease in essential nutrients, seals are not reproducing healthy pups if at all. Once born, the seals have a small chance of survival because many seals depend on ice caps to raise their young.

    Due to global warming and climate change, many seals living in colder regions are losing much of their natural habitat. Due to the melting of glaciers and ice caps, many seals are losing areas where they normally breed, hunt, and live. And climate change has also affected food availability for seals as well. There has been a significant drop in seal population since the ’50s with half the population gone in 1985.
