International Polar Bear Day was founded by Polar Bears International, the world's largest polar bear conservation organization. It is observed annually on February 27.  The polar bear is one of the largest terrestrial mammal species. An adult male (boar) weighs around 350–700 kg, while an adult female (sow) is about half that size. The polar bear occupies quite a narrow ecological niche, its lives mainly in the Arctic and is poorly adapted to warm temperatures.  The polar bear is…

Political & legal challenges in a Mars colony. In our essay we are going to briefly discuss some legal and political questions associated with the future colonization of Mars which is now being planned by NASA and the second one is known as Project MarsOne. We assume that it will be unclear as to which legal and political solutions could work in the new Martian ecological niche. Here we will show that this issue requires more attention because we unable to predict which elements of human…

The White-tailed Eagle (Haliaeetus albicilla[2]) — also called the Sea Eagle, Erne (sometimes Ern), and White-tailed Sea-eagle — is a large bird of prey in the family Accipitridae which includes other raptors such as hawks, kites, and harriers. It is considered a close cousin of the Bald Eagle and occupies the same ecological niche, but in Eurasia.

Tenderness and love, mama & cub. Although Polar bears are the sister species of the brown bear, it has evolved to occupy a narrower ecological niche, with many body characteristics adapted for cold temperatures, for moving across snow, ice, and open water, and for hunting the seals which make up most of its diet.

The Red Breasted Toucan (Ramphastos dicolorus) or Green-billed Toucan is fairly common in its range that includes the Atlantic forest of eastern and southern Brazil, eastern Paraguay and extreme northeastern Argentina. Its range is the southernmost of all toucans.  Toucans eat mostly fruit therefore filling an ecological niche in that they aid in the dispersal of seed. Additionally, they will prey on insects, small reptiles and raid nests of other birds in order to add necessary protein to…
