Tonight with Lester Podcast

Climate Change, it's happening


Guest : Nhlanhla Sibisi | Campaigner at Greenpeace Africa

In what is being called a consequence of climate change, more than 50 polar bears
have invaded a Russian settlement in the Arctic, forcing terrified residents to stay in
their homes.
The settlement, Belushya Guba, off Russia’s northeast coast and has a population of
about 2,500.
Officials declared a state of emergency on Saturday after reports of bears attacking
people and entering homes.
Because polar bears are protected in Russia, residents are prohibited from killing the
hungry intruders. The settlement has put up additional fences in an effort to control the
bears.
Generally, polar bears are born on land but spend most of their time on ice sheets and
in the water, where they hunt and feed on seals.
Joining us on the line is Nhlanhla Sibisi , Climate and Energy Campaigner with
Greenpeace Africa
