Polar bears are affected by decreasing sea ice

The global population of polar bears is predicted to decrease by 30% in the next 45 years.

Arctic and surrounding seas produce more than 10% of global marine fisheries catches by weight

The Arctic and surrounding seas also account for 5.3% of the world's crustean catch by weight.

Of the 21 Northern languages that have gone extinct, 48% of those have disappeared since 1990.

This indicates an increasing rate of language extinction.

The ivory gull, a high Arctic species has decreased by 80% (since the 1980s)

on its Canadian range.

Northern plants are expected to lose up to 43% of their current distribution

under A2 and B2 climate change scenarios.

More than 50% of the world's wetlands are  in the Arctic and sub-Arctic

Wetlands are important for carbon storage and water cycling.
