Impacts on Inuit Communities and Marine Ecosystems
Watch the recording
The impact of climate change in the Arctic is already evident and will be widespread. News headlines often focus on melting ice, increasing industrial development, and loss of habitat for animals like polar bears and whales. But we also need to consider the impact on Arctic communities, and the less obvious parts of the food web that those communities rely on.
Watch the webinar to hear Brent Else discuss his recent research in the Canadian Arctic and what we should additionally focus on as the Arctic climate changes.
