Melting Paradise

Glacier National Park, one of America’s most stunning natural environments, is going through a dramatic climate change. Global warming is rapidly melting the glaciers, of which only about 27 remain; and some scientists worry about the effects that a warmer climate may have on the native species. Hundreds of lakes, a variety of mountainous peaks, lowly wetlands, and numerous waterfalls provide a natural paradise for over 2,000 species of plants and animals — making this one of the most bio-diverse landscapes in North America.
