Arctic hare’s description
I wear a thick white fur that keeps me warm and serves as a camouflage against predators. During summer, my fur goes brown so that I can hide inside rocks or mud. Otherwise, my only remaining chance is to run : I can reach up to 70kph !
55 to 70
4 to 5
Where do I live ?
I like cold countries. I live in Canada, Greenland and Alaska.
Which threats ?
In the long run, global warming threatens me. If temperatures increase in the South, the animals who prefer cold could migrate towards the North … and encroach on my territory.
Kiwiwho’s word to save the arctic hare
No need to hurry : I am still very common so there does not exist any conservation measure about me yet. I hope it won’t change any time soon !
You too, help us to raise awareness about arctic hare’s fate !
