How climate chance affects glaciers

Since the 1960s climate change is affecting glaciers dramatically. About 40% of the Arctics

Ice has decreased and if we don't try to stop it, most of the glaciers in the world will be gone in about 30 years. By 2040 all of glacier national park may be melted or extremely close to melting if we don't change. The polar ice cap is on average melting 9% every 10 years that will be a crucial loss to the world if it melts.




How glaciers melting are affecting Animals habitats

When glaciers melt, many animals are being left with no home. A lot of animals that live on glaciers, or have to travel on glaciers to get food are ether being left with no habitat or they are starving. When they travel to get food they will ether have to explore farther or end up with no food at all, and it will take more energy to travel farther and to reproduce. Another way glaciers are affecting Animal's habitats and eventually ours is that when the glaciers melt a pesticide called DDT is being released into the air and it is poisonous to us.

Some animals being affected

What you can do to help!!!

How to help

You can help save many animal lives and help save glaciers in many ways. A couple ways are by not using Greenhouse gases because that makes the ozone layer weaker, and that leads to more sun rays coming through to the earth. One other way you can help is by stopping pollution.


If you don't act to global warming

If we don't act to global warming in about 30 years there will be close to no more glaciers left in glacier national park. Not only in glacier national park though, many other places all around the world are being affected dramatically by global warming including your habitat. You have to remember it's not just to save others, it could eventually affect you and your life.
