Arctic Sea Ice Day Events

Join us for two live events on Arctic Sea Ice Day, July 15th, as we draw attention to sea ice loss in the Arctic, why it matters, and how you can help by talking about climate warming with others.

Our webcasts will also celebrate the return of beluga whales to the Churchill River, a species that, like the polar bear, relies on sea ice for their survival.
