You can tell the Arctic ringed seal by the ring-shaped

marks on its coat. But like other inhabitants of the

Arctic region, the ringed seal's numbers are dwindling

due to human activity.

Take action to save the Arctic ringed seal >>

Oil and gas exploration is destroying much of the

ringed seal's range, and global warming is impacting

its food supply.

Cod is a favorite of ring seals during the ice-free

season, but it's highly contaminated with mercury. As

global warming extends the ice-free season, ring seals

are eating more and more contaminated cod.

The mercury contamination will only get worse for the

Arctic ringed seal unless we start to seriously address

global warming! More research is needed to see just how

the transfer of mercury in the food web is being

affected by global warming.

Urge Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar to ensure

his department puts resources behind investigating the

impact of global warming on the Arctic >>
