How Humans Affect The Arctic Maggie and Jaylan

Humans affect the Arctic in many ways. Two ways humans affect the Arctic is by causing oil spills and hunting polar bears.
In the article "Human Influences" it says that "human influences are vast and untapped oil reserves in the Arctic have made it a target for oil companies". Untapped means a supply or source of something that has not yet been used. Oil spills are affecting the Arctic in bad ways. The oil spills are affecting the fish. That means that the animals are not eating so that is why the animal population is decreasing in the Arctic. Humans affect the Arctic by causing oil spills and it is causing animals to decrease in the Arctic. This proves that humans are affecting the Arctic in bad ways.
I n the article ''Saving the Arctic'' it said, people are killing polar bears and this is increasing the fish population in the arctic. Without the polar bears there won't be leftovers for the animals to eat. This means polar bears are getting more extinct each year and the animals that depend on the polar bear for food of it's leftover meat. The other animals eat the leftovers as a way to survive. This is important because without polar bears the animals will not survive. This means we should protect the polar bears.
As you have learned, there are many different ways humans affect the Arctic. Both ways are very harmful to the Arctic animals. With these problems the animal population will decrease in the Arctic.
