Ecologic Concerns or Issues
The Tundra may be very dangerous. But there are people that can live in the Tundra. But it is very hard sometimes to live in the Tundra. The tundra is a very fragile environment. The extremely cold temperatures makes it a difficult environment to survive in during the winter, and plants and animals have a hard time coping with any extra stresses and disturbances. More people moving to the tundra to work in the mines and oil rigs have created towns and more roads. Some animal's movements to traditional feeding and denning grounds have been disrupted by these obstacles.
