Last Ice Area

The Last Ice Area is part of the Arctic’s ice located north of Greenland. It has melted earlier than expected. The recent report revealed that this area experienced a record low concentration of sea ice. The researchers earlier believed that it was strong enough to withstand the climate crisis.

The area began changing since 2018. The main reasons are weather-related factors and rapid warming up of the Earth. This is detrimental for the survival of polar bears, which depend on this area for hunting seals that use summer ice to build dens for rearing their offspring. It is also critical for the survival of walruses.
