Since the 1970s, the average temperature in the Arctic has increased by about 2.3 °C. Earlier spring, less cold winters, extensive ice melting and destructive actions of civilization cause large-scale behavioral changes in animals of the Far North. The continuing rise in temperature, oil production, shipping and other human activities every year puts more and more animals on the brink of extinction. According to many climate models, ice in the Arctic may disappear by 2050 in summer, and with it more than 70% animals may disappear, and most of the territory will become unusable for them.
