Caption: Dead polar bear (Ursus maritimus) . Polar bear lying dead in the high arctic, Canada. This male bear most likely died from starvation. It is thought the recent effects of global warming and climate change, such as sea ice melting earlier in the season and glaciers receding, have altered local food supplies, leading to a decline in polar bear numbers.
