There's a problem in the Arctic. The ice is melting. Also, there are not enough seals in the Arctic now, so polar bears are preying on walruses. This is hurting their population. If the ice melts they will have no habitat to live and hunt on.

We can prevent global warming by recycling, using less energy, using less fuel, and by planting more trees. Do your part to help save the polar bears.



The Eagle will be running a sampling of letters to the editor from second grade students at Stearns School in Pittsfield based on their studies of polar bears and the effect global warming is having on them.
