Beyond polar bears and seals, there are many other animals and plant life that depend on Arctic ice. This game is a fun way to learn about the food web in the Arctic. You may think someplace cold and filled with ice does not have a lot happening, but that is not the case. Just below the surface under the ice is a world that includes a range of living things - from the tiny phytoplankton to the huge walrus and even bigger whales. All depend on Arctic ice to survive. Try your hand at saving this ecosystem by playing EcoChains: Arctic Futures.
