Let's come and join our extraordinary journey to the northern tip of the world, where the vast expanse of permafrost is dominated by spectacular landscapes of immense glaciers, majestic waterfalls, giant ice shelves and amazing auroras. Here is one of the Earthˇ¦s harshest places to live, but many wild animals have adapted to the frigid environment and settled here.

As global warming quickly escalates into a global warning, the fragile and vulnerable Arctic climate has been seriously affected. With less ice to reflect the Sunˇ¦s rays, the Arctic is warming at a rate twice as fast as anywhere else on Earth. Scientists predict that in the near future, the Arctic Ocean will be completely free of sea ice during summer time. The wildlife is also threatened by the impact. Polar bears have to swim longer distances to search for food because of the dwindling sea ice cover. Also, caribous have to migrate to grassland earlier than before, because of the floods caused by premature melting of ice in early spring.

The new Omnimax Show ˇ§To the Arcticˇ¨ takes audience to the pristine Arctic Circle, explores how wildlife copes with the worsening environment under the threat of global warming. The audience can get closer into the lives of a mother polar bear with her twin cubs, and in an inspired story of love and survival, see how she protects her children against fierce and ruthless enemies.

Global climate change leads to a drastic reduction in sea ice of the Arctic, adversely affecting the ecology as well as threatening the lives of animals which have the Arctic as their home.

Each year in late winter, large herds of caribou set out for the grassland near the coast of Alaska, U.S. for giving birth to their young. It is a long journey of several thousand kilometers and is also one of the massive animal migrations on Earth.

As sea ice melts, the walruses could not rely on it as a platform for expanding their hunting area. They are stuck on coastal area and have to swim further to find food.

The distance between ice packs is growing. In search of food, one polar bear had continuously swam nearly 700 km for 9 days before it could find another large floating ice pack.

As it becomes more and more difficult to catch seals as food, male polar bears sometimes prey on polar bear cubs.

Scientists predict that the Arctic Ocean could be free of ice in future summer. At that time, these lovely animals may not be able to find a home.
