Transcript of the arctic lowlands

Write up # two: How do the mining industries in the Arctic lowlands affect natural habitats?
Now, I am going to talk to you about the mining industries in the arctic lowlands affect natural habitats. In the arctic lowlands, companies own a lot of mining industries that make a lot of materials. But, when these industries are at work some kind of pollution has to come from the industry and that is oil. This oil pollutes the arctic waters and affects natural habitats that are homes to animals and plants in the water and are getting polluted. The oil pollution kills animals and plants in that habitat. This industry affects the natural habitats of the arctic lowlands oceans by polluting it with oil and this needs to be stopped because it affects living creatures habitats. The physical regions and the natural resources of the arctic lowlands:
The physical regions of the Arctic lowlands are the canadian shield and the intuitian region. The Canadian shield and the Intuitian region are regions of tundra which makes up the Arctic lowlands. These regions are located in Nunavut. These regions are treeless, cold and dry climate with poorly drained soil. The natural resources of the arctic lowlands contains lignite (a form of coal), oil, and natural gas deposits. There is a great amount of Limestone as well. These arre the pysical regions and the natural resorces of the Arctic lowlands. How does mining industries in the arctic affect natural habitats The Arctic lowlands How are humans dependent in the arctic lowlands Today, I am going to talk to you about the polar bear habitat in the arctic lowlands and about its food chain. The arctic lowland is located from the North Pole all the way down to Quebec. In this beautiful place there are a lot of animals that run in a food chain. This food chain runs as a regular large food chain would. This food chain has a decomposer, producer, consumer 1, consumer 2 and the animal at the top of the food chain. The environment has effected this food chain because the polar bear is at the top of the food chain. Global warming is effecting the polar bears due to the green-house effect, where the global temperatures are rising. Because of higher temperatures, ice is melting and icebergs where polar bears live are disappearing. Polar bears are not very good swimmers. As the icebergs melt, the polar bears become trapped. If the polar bears are trapped they cannot hunt the consumer 2, which is the seal. If polar bears cannot hunt the seal, the seal will overpopulate and will over-hunt the consumer 1, which is fish. Eventually the seal will run out of fish to eat and will starve themselves. Without fish, the producer, phytoplankton, will overpopulate and take over the ocean. Each level of the food chain has a big effect on the other. The chain is made of links that are connected and when a link is broken, it breaks the chain. This is how the environment of the arctic lowlands effects the arctic lowlands food chain. Write up # three: How are humans dependent to the arctic lowlands food chain
Humans are dependent to the arctic lowland’s food chain because the animal that is on the top of the food chain which is the polar bear would over populate if there was nothing to kill it. That thing that kills the polar bear is humans, who are at the top of every single food chain. That makes humans important to the food chain because if humans did not kill the polar bears they would over populate, eat all the seals and then starve themselves. But, this does not only affect the polar bears as I said before. This is how humans are dependent to the arctic lowlands food chain. s The negative and positive impacts that humans have on natural habitats:
I am going to talk to you about the negative and positive impacts humans. One positive negative impact humans have on natural habitats is water pollution. Many people in the world working in big industries have to pollute in order to stay in business and this effects natural habitats because they can not take polluted water or air because it kills them. One Positive impact that humans make a impact is humans help the population of the animals and cut down the food chain for food. If humans did not do this, the animal at the top of the food chain would over populate and take over the world. This is the positive and negitive impacts humans have on natural habitats. The Arctic lowlands is not only a region itself, But it shares a region with the innutian region. The arctic lowlands are located in the innutian region. The lowlands are located in Nunavut. The province that makes up this region is Nunavut. Nunavut shares it's land with the regions Arctic lowlands, Canadian shield and The innutian region.
