As climate changes the habitats of many species are impacted. The focus of our work was around Alaska. There several species that are considered endangered or threatened in this part of the United States, including the iconic polar bear, Northern Sea otter, Stellar’s Eastern and Western Sea Lion, and many other animal, fish, and plant species.
Go to the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service’s Environmental Conservation Online System. Choose a species to learn more about. Investigate how climate change is impacting its survival and look into what scientists are doing now to help save the species and create your own design solutions that can help the species adapt in their changing climate.
