Piniartoq project

A project about polar bears, communities and climate change in Greenland.
The Piniartoq Project documents climate change’s direct cost to a rare and ancient culture. It illustrates how species conservation relies on working together with local communities and respecting different cultural values.  And it gives a thrillingly close look at what’s happening with people and polar bears in the far north. It shows what we are fighting for.
