Earth’s climate has been changing over the last few decades, with the global temperatures rising at a high rate (Corell, 2006). Some of these climate changes are due to natural causes, although the strength at which temperatures are rising indicates human influences, such as increased carbon dioxide emission, as well as other greenhouse gases. Climate change particularly affects the Arctic region, where warmer temperatures are causing decrease in sea ice extent and thickness, permafrost thawing, coastal erosion, changes in ice sheets and shelves, and consequently, changes in the distribution and reproduction rates of Arctic species (Corell, 2006).
Grizzly bears are a dominant species in their niche. They are located in the north america deep into the forest. There favorite food is salmon. There ecosystem is filled with all sorts of other wildlife. Grizzly bears are also efficient in the ecosystem.
Only about 1700 species of plants live in the tundra, and only 48 species of animals. Many animals in tundra hibernate in the winter, and many more animals migrate to a warmer climate for a certain amount of time. The types of animals in tundra vary from polar bears, to snowy owls, to arctic foxes. These animals have special adaptations such as dense fur to stay warm in winter, and reduce heat loss. Other animals dig holes that they use for warmth, protection and shelter.

A large lapbook with a cover featuring a number of bears with appealing smiles holds the title, “The Story of Fourteen Bears.” Appropriate, one might think, assuming the story is about 14 bears. And in fact, when the book spine cracks open, little minds will discover that yes, there are 14 bears. And yes, this is their story. But what this “Big Golden Book,” by Evelyn Scott does not at first express, is the depth that lies between the relationship and customs of these specific bears.
Ironically, most black bears are not black, but instead are mostly brown, blond, and sometimes reddish brown. Average adult males weight about 115 kilograms and females about 70 kilograms, thought the largest recorded black bear weighed 312 kilogams. Their diet mainly consists of grasses and berries, and acorns during the fall. Black bears consume about 20,000 calories per day, which is equivalent to a person eating 40 McDonald’s Big Mac sandwiches. A fun fact about Yosemite black bears is that their diet has drastically changed because they have become accustomed to eating human food.

One of the best days of my life was when we went deer hunting in South Dakota with my dad, brother, uncle and two cousins, but before I tell you about my trip let me tell you how it started. We left early in the morning to head to South Dakota where my cousin Jacob, who had just got a job as Game warden in Custer State Park, was taking us deer hunting. We got as far as Fargo, North Dakota when my cousin Keith asked my dad where our license were. Then to our surprise we forgot them back at home. We were lucky enough to have my two aunts and mom bring us the license because they were going to Fargo that day anyways for a girls shopping day. They just had to leave a little earlier. So we just waited in a parking lot until they
