- Adapted from Arctic Mission: Lords of the Arctic, produced by the National Film Board of Canada. Students could be encouraged, as a result of this video segment, to explore other animals faced with climate change-induced habitat challenges and plot them out on a map to see where climate change is having an impact and on what kinds of animals.
About the Science
- Video is about impact of climate change on the migration of Canada's barren-ground caribou. Caribou migration routes are typically determined by weather factors. However as global warming continues, traditional migration timings and pathways are leading more and more caribou to their death.
- Passed initial science review - expert science review pending.
About the Pedagogy
- Background information, discussion questions, and alignment with standards are provided.
