Sea ice covers around 15% of our world’s oceans at any given time. With such a substantial area of coverage, it is no surprise that sea ice is actually incredibly important to maintaining the balance needed to keep all of our planet’s ecosystems healthy.
The melting of sea ice can have far-reaching impacts such as changing weather patterns, altering ocean tides, and rising sea levels, which can all result in ecosystem disturbances that may harm animal life. We must act now to prevent these potential outcomes from occurring!
Refer to the guide below to understand more about why it is critical that we prevent further warming and loss of sea ice.
