Potential impact of the second-lowest sea ice minimum since 1979 on polar bear survival

-

The annual summer sea ice minimum in the Arctic has been reached and while the precise extent has not yet been officially determined, it’s clear this will be the ‘second lowest’ minimum (after 2012) since 1979.
