Problems in the arctic

Ozone depletion at the north and south poles means stronger ultraviolet rays that will harm the tundra.


Global warming will kill ice but not the permafrost but the sunrays could hurt speices of animals that live in the arctic.


Establish protect areas and park reserves to restrict human influence

Air pollution

Air pollution can cause smog clouds that contaminates lichen, a significant food source for many animals.


it caused by humans


Limit road construction, mining activities, and the building of pipelines in tundra habitat


The melting of permafrost as a result of global warming could radically change the landscape and what species are able to live there.


it is us causing it from air pollution


minimize human made global warming amazingly change the landscape and what speices are able to live there

Weather in the Artic

The tundra is a bleak treeless place. It is cold though all of the months of the year. The summer is a brief period of milder climates. When the sun shines almost 24 hours a day, it has been called ''The land of midnight sun''. But even the sun cant warm the tundra much. The short summer last only 6 to 10 weeks long. It never gets warmer than 45 or 50 degrees ferinheight. the warmer weather causes a layer of permafrost(ice that never goes away in the ground to melt).

Seals can hold there breath for long periods of time. They have thick fur to keep them warm. They eat small fish and placation. Sharks,Killer whales snack on seals. Seals are aggressive animals and there have been reports of seals injuring surfers in the ocean.

Beluga Whales

Beluga whales turn there heads to communicate better with echolocation. Beluga whales eat small octopus,squid,crabs,sand worms,cod,and sea weed. Polar bares and humans eat thees whales. Beluga whales are omnivores which means they eat meat and plants.

Arctic Moss

Tundra plants have developed adaptations that help them thrive in this harsh climate. There short height makes them less vulnerable to strong winds, and shadow roots allow them to pull moisture from the soil above permafrost.


The arctic is the youngest biome it spreads across Canada,Greenland,Russia, and Iceland the arctic is the worlds coldest and driest biome it is like the desert when it comes to precipitation the arctic is one of the earth's major contentions the ground is always frozen and it is a carbon dioxide sinks.
