Climate Watch Shorts: Polar bears on the brink
When the ice in Hudson Bay melts each spring, northern Ontario becomes home to nearly a thousand polar bears, but scientists are noticing extreme weight loss among that population. Between 1984 and 2009, the average weight of a male polar bear in the region dropped by 45 kilograms, while females were 31 kilograms lighter. A shorter freeze-up season means less time to access vital food sources, and that puts Ontario's polar bear population at risk.

Climate Watch Shorts: Georgina Island First Nation
The Chippewas of Georgina Island in Lake Simcoe have developed a climate adaptation plan that is serving as a model for communities across Ontario. The First Nation received funding for a three-year climate study in 2012 and has since been collecting the memories and observances of elders. Like many communities, Georgina Island is struggling with the effects of climate change today. Milder winters mean the community's ferry runs longer and the lake ice is weaker, both of which have ripple effects throughout the island.
