Climate change is causing significant changes in the oceans, including rising sea temperatures and increased acidity. These changes can have profound effects on marine mammals, including changes in migration patterns, food availability, and habitat suitability. For example, melting sea ice due to warming temperatures is having a significant impact on Arctic marine mammals such as polar bears and walruses. Additionally, changes in the distribution and abundance of prey species can have cascading effects on the entire food web. Climate change can also exacerbate existing threats to marine mammals, such as habitat loss and pollution. Protecting these animals and their habitats is crucial to maintaining the health and resilience of ocean ecosystems.
