I have been deeply moved by the effects of global warming on animals. My hexagon is of endangered animals that have taken a toll from global warming. Such as the baby seal, snow leopard, polar bears and penguins. The news text is to make it look almost as if it were an article. The concern that my article is stating is, “Ice-busting storms and warmer waters from the rising temperatures are destroying the ice cover that harp seals need to survive during their first vulnerable weeks in life.” Brian J. Skerry, National Geographic. The thought of animals being killed by our selfish ways just makes me infuriated, that is what compelled me to do this topic.

This concern is most relevant in northeastern Canada, eastern Greenland and northwestern Russia. Some incredible statistics of these horrid occurrences are; in 2007, 75% of pups perished because of poor ice conditions. In 2010 almost none survived. An organization trying to solve this epidemic is the Sea~Thos Foundation. To improve this problem, people have been trying to stop global warming and creating safer homes for the harp seals.

I like the way that you used the newspaper clipings for your background.
