In recent decades, humanity is responsible for the extinction of the polar bear, as one of the largest terrestrial carnivores on Earth and the Arctic superpredator. Undoubtedly, that the main enemy at this time is man and his activities that give rise to the most impactful environmental problems in the world such as, environmental pollution, global warming and climate change that affect their habitat and are rapidly reducing their population .
Global warming is the enemy that is decreasing by 30% in the last 45 years the amount of polar bears, which by 2008 hovered between 20,000 and 25,000 species.
The problem lies in the fact that the ice poles where the polar bear lives are melting and causing it to find another firm ground, affecting the 15% drop in the birth rate.

Scientists say that by 2050, two-thirds of the polar bear population will be extinguished, leaving approximately 20,000 copies so far that could disappear if the increase and growth of global warming does not stop in less than 100 years.
These, with the main causes that threaten the extinction of polar bears:
- The unconscious and irrational activities of all humanity.
- Environmental pollution.
- Seal toxin contamination as their main food.
- The lack of food that forces them to approach humans.
- The global warming that produces the thaw, melting of the glaciers, the climatic changes, increase of the temperature and ecological imbalances that cause the loss of their habitats.
Faced with this problem, it is important that all mankind put into practice measures that reduce global warming and the extinction of the polar bear such as:
- Education and environmental information.
- rational use of natural resources.
- Conservation, protection and assessment of the planet’s biodiversity.
- Reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
- Consume responsibly.
- Use renewable energy.
- Promote environmental technology.
- Save water and energy.
- Recycle, reduce and reuse.
- Use ecological or biodegradable products.
- Promote organic farming.
- Promote sustainable mobility.
- The reforestation.
- Adaptation to climate change.
- Promote sustainable development and quality of life.
- Other environmental conservation measures, ecological and sustainable with the environment.
