Protecting Biodiversity in the Polar Regions

The United Nations Environmental Program hopes to ensure the protection of animal species currently depleting in both North and South polar regions, allowing delegates of countries more focused on laying claim to the land, to create unique, innovative solutions others may not have thought of. The current state of biodiversity is a multifaceted issue that can be taken in many perspectives, from battling the fight of climate change itself, to preservation procedures of the actual animals there. The polar regions are crucial due to both housing over 5500 species, and contribute to climate change effects even more (eg. sea levels).
