What further risks can occur if changes to the natural process continue?
Many species native to Canada’s north are currently endangered, and if climate change continues these species are at risk of going extinct.
Species that are at risk include the Walrus, Caribou, Polar Bear, and many others.
Polar Bears hunt on sea ice and they also use it to travel from one place to another, without that sea ice polar bears have to go longer without food and they will have to adapt to a land-based lifestyle where they are at risk of competition for food and other necessities, hybridization, and more interactions with humans
Certain seal species such as the harp seal, spotted seal, and ringed seal rely on sea ice for resting and taking care of pups, without it they expose newborns to a higher risk of getting killed by predators
Walrus rely on sea ice for resting and feeding, they travel long distances on floating ice allowing them to feed over a wide area, without that they would have to travel farther to feed
Coastal erosion means buildings in some communities have to be relocated
Global warming is known to cause the sea level to rise, and that rise in sea level means that the coast will erode more and more.
Weather will change and even become somewhat unpredictable
The transitional period between seasons is becoming longer
The lack of food will negatively affect people and animals
Animals are not adapting to the lack of food which is a result of climate change
Less food for animals means less food for people
Less food for indigenous people due to there being less animals
