Why is The Tundra globally important

It may seem useless during the winter because of how cold it is and all the snow that's on the ground. But when summer comes around, it provides vegetation, and other animals. That provides life for animals like Polar bears, Arctic foxes, and Caribou's to live in the Tundra.
