The Arctic Fox is primarily a carnivore that lives away from the coasts. They are normally about 11 inches high and 18 to 27 inches long. They weigh 3 to 20 pounds and are adorable little foxes.

They are dependent on smaller creatures to survive, such as lemmings. They also hunt for sea birds, fish and other aquatic life. Other prey populations, such as rodents, waver and leave these animals vulnerable when they are low.

The prey scarcity and genetic breeding of this species is now becoming a major problem. These problems together could cause us to lose this Arctic species.

The World Wildlife Foundation supports and protects Fragile ecosystems. The WWF mitigates the effects of climate change to ensure this species survival and many others.
