AbstractThis paper will outline the challenges for the protection of biodiversity and wilderness in the polar regions that are becoming increasingly evident from impacts attributed to climate change, globalisation and energy resource development. Although all of these impacts have significant adverse environmental consequences for fragile marine eco-systems, the terrestrial areas in these regions are also in danger of experiencing irreversible damage unless immediate attention is given to address the situation through a concerted and focused effort on the part of the several nations claiming sovereignty over these disputed areas. In particular, the paper will use the plight of the polar bear, that has just recently been designated as a ‘threatened’ specie under the US Endangered Species Act, as a case study of how terrestrial area management in polar regions must adapt to a rapidly changing set of parameters.
