" WASHINGTON - The polar bear has become an icon of global warming vulnerability, but a new study found an Arctic mammal that may be even more at risk to climate change: the narwhal.

The narwhal, a whale with a long spiral tusk that inspired the myth of the unicorn, edged out the polar bear for the ranking of most potentially vulnerable in a climate change risk analysis of Arctic marine mammals."

...the unicorns will go the way of the fairies cry (i'm part smile Welsh).

Thanks for broadening the focus, Amaranth Rose.
I liked this quote especially.

"We're talking about a whole ecosystem. We're talking about several different species that use ice extensively and are very vulnerable."

It's not just this or that species; it's whole ecosystems!
