Caption: Arctic landscape in spring, Lancaster Sound, Nunavut, Canada. The midnight sun is visible at top right. A crack has appeared in the sea ice. which will expand as the season progresses. In recent years, the effects of global warming have caused sea ice to melt earlier in the season and glaciers to recede. This climate change is affecting local wildlife populations, such as polar bears, which are declining in numbers due to starvation.
