In the documentary out now entitled Arctic Tale, Queen Latifah narrates the story written by Kristin Gore of a walrus calf they call Seela and a polar bear cub dubbed Nanu. The tale follows both animals from their birth all the way through to their own journey of parenthood, a period of roughly fifteen years.

Day to day life for these two little animals take on the normal perils, but when you include the added problems caused by global warming and the fact that sea ice is shrinking daily, it makes their lives infinitely more difficult. Both polar bears and walruses rely on sea ice in their daily lives, though in different ways. The polar bears use the ice surface for hunting food, as well as shelter, and the walruses use the ice as resting spots to take a break from swimming. As the surface of sea ice shrinks it makes the lives of both animals more difficult as they have to travel further from point A to point B. Arctic Tale seeks to help spread awareness to the pitfalls that face not only us, but also animals like Seela and Nanu due to global warming.

The movie, from the same group that brought you March of the Penguins, has already released in NYC & LA and will hit theaters nationwide on August 17.
