In 1900 there were 100,000 cheetahs in the world. By 2006, due to loss of habitat and prey, the number of cheetahs has declined to just 12,000. That's why I founded KidsLoveAnimals.com, which is dedicated to educating kids and their families about endangered species. If you love animals, please bookmark this site. In future posts we will take you along on our personal journey to Save the Animals through our KIDSLOVEANIMALS.com DVD series.

Global Warming is Threatening Animals

The April 3rd issue of Time Magazine has an interesting feature on global warming...

The photograph taken in 1928, above, shows how the Upsala Glacier, part of the South American Andes in Argentina, used to look. The ice on the Upsala Glacier today, shown in 2004 below, is retreating at least 180 ft. per year

From the Magazine | Cover

This is all very worrying isn't it Paul. Particularly alarming when you live in a country that is largely below sea level!
Keep up the good work

Thanks Val,

I recently heard that the oceans could rise as high as 17 feet if the polar ice caps melt. Rising oceans alone will displace millions of people around the world.

Cheers,
Paul

Hi Paul,
As a Canadian, we've been hearing for years that the melting of the polar ice caps is really hurting the polar bear population as well. The mothers cannot store enough fat to adequately feed their babies, and the results are that too many of them are underweight. There has been a lot of work and research done to tag the bears and track their progress, but it's very alarming to see that our planet is slowly being destroyed and no one seems to quite get the idea that it's urgent that we change our ways, for animals, for humans, for every living being.

*sigh*
