Seals are in trouble

Why Are Seals In Danger?

They are in danger because the ice is melting. The ice is melting because the air is getting warmer. The air is getting warmer because people are driving cars and building factories. This activity puts a lot of carbon dioxide into the air. This makes the air warmer. I don't know how this happens, though.  Seals need the ice. It's where they rest before hunting.

How can you help?

If you can, walk instead of driving a car. Ride you bike or scooter.

Instead of buying new toys, play with the ones you already have or buy used toys. This means the toy factories won't have to use more energy to make extra toys.

Don't watch too much TV or play too much computers. Turn off the TV and computer when you aren't using them.

Turn off the lights.

Turn down the heat in the winter and turn it up in the summer.

Don't waste food. When you waste food, you waste energy.

What ideas do you have to save the seals?


  1. Great job, Devin!! Carbon dioxide traps the heat in the Earth's atmosphere and keeps it from escaping into outer space. So the Earth gets warmer. Another way to save the seals is to use the clothes you have and not run out and buy things just to keep up with changing styles. However, this is harder for kids-- because you're growing! Mary

  2. Wow! Fabulous job Devin. I love the pictures and your enthusiasm at such a young age.
    Way to go! -Kara

  3. Hello Devin, I'm so proud of you thinking of our planet at such a young age. The seals are in danger and you are doing something to help them survive. I put energy saving bulbs in almost all of our light sockets. I turn down the heat at night. I have taken the CATA bus a few times, and you have inspired me to take it more often. The bus runs on natural gas. Better for the environment and better that many people are riding in one vehicle.
    Thank you for being an advocate for the planet and the seals.
