Welcome to the Information superhighway on the Wild, Here, you will find complete resources on the Wild. If you wont find it here you wont find it elsewhere. I have dedicated my website to one of my passions; and that is saving the animals of this planet!! I believe that knowledge is power!! If we don't know about something, then we can't do anything about it, but once we DO know, then it is our responsibility to do something about it!! My primary goal is to educate us all about the problems that our wildlife encounters, and hopefully together we CAN do something positive about it!! I believe that each individual on this planet CAN make a difference in this life, and I hope throughout this site, together WE can make a difference.
I would like to say about the artic region first as I am much impressed by the artic animals. The world has many different animals. In the Arctic we have many animals that are unique to the north that we would like to tell you about. I have chosen some of the most unique arctic animals there are. I have stories to read, great pictures of the animals, interesting facts to share, and some fun activities to do.The Arctic is an exciting place full of animals and people. There are many types of animals that have their own habitat and it isn't all frozen. The animals vary in size and characteristics.
The Arctic has eight nations within it. They are Canada, Denmark (Greenland), Finland, Iceland, Norway, Russia, Sweden and the United States. It is an area with 2 million people in it and over 50 languages. One reason that it is a very important area is because of how it affects the weather patterns in the northern hemisphere.
The arctic land is mainly tundra. This frozen ground is above the tree line and is covered with hearty plants like moss and lichen, which caribou and muskox feed on. The arctic animals are hearty creatures because low temperatures and precipitation with strong winds are not uncommon in the Arctic.
The different animals we've listed here live all over the Arctic. Most do not go below the arctic circle or 66-1/2 degrees north latitude. Each of them are vital and significant to each other and to the arctic people for survival.
The people of arctic Alaska depend on the caribou and muskox for most of their food and clothing. Some villages in Greenland and arctic Canada depend on the narwhal for their entire existence!
A wide range of marine mammals and fish live in the severe conditions of the Arctic ocean. Whales, dolphins (narwhal), walruses and seals all make their home in this North Polar region which is covered by ice most of the year. The great polar bear depends on these marine mammals and fish for his survival.
