- Use in Biology, Earth Science, and Environment courses when discussing the impacts of climate change on the Arctic and its ecosystems.
- This video is best used in conjunction with related videos: 1) Faces of Climate - Introduction http://vimeo.com/19581877 and 2) Faces of Climate – Disappearing Ice http://vimeo.com/19583956.
About the Science
- This video describes the importance of pack ice to Spectacled Eiders, Walruses, and Ringed Seal.
- Good, clear examples of the impact of increasing temperatures on different animal species.
- Passed initial science review - expert science review pending.
About the Pedagogy
- This video would be a good introduction to the ecological consequences of climate change and the relationship of the Inuit people to that ecology.
- This is the second of three videos that could be used together to teach about the changes in the Arctic: http://vimeo.com/tag:facesofclimatechange
