A habitat is a place where a plant or animal usually lives. The environment provides food, water, and shelter.
Different living things require different
habitats according to their needs.

Watch this video to see how polar bears live in their arctic habitat. Their white fur helps them hide on the ice when hunting seals and their large, webbed paws help them swim long distances. Thick fur and a layer of blubber keeps them warm in the cold, harsh climate.
An animal’s habitat can be quite large. Pacific humpback whales live in warm Hawaiian waters and the frigid waters of Alaska. Listen to how the humpbacks communicate.
