Change at the Top of the World

In the documentary Change at the Top of the World, founder Charlie Annenberg visits the Canadian territory of Nunavut, an Arctic land with an 85% Inuit population. He talks with towns' mayors about how climate change is altering their ways of life: people being located due to rising sea levels, mothers being warned to not eat too much fish due to pollution and mercury, ice fishing diminishing with the melting glaciers. The film mirrors many of the same issues facing the Beaufort Sea Coastal Plain near Utqiagvik, Alaska, the home of our Snowy Owl study.
The land is stunning and beautifully filmed in Change at the Top of World, which you can see here. Watch till the end to learn 10 things you can do to help combat climate change.
