Lords of the Arctic

Lords of the Arctic
The unique wildlife that thrives in the Arctic's stark landscape has long captivated our imaginations Ice plays a critical role in maintaining this fragile ecosystem. As temperatures rise because of global warming, will these northern plants and wildlife be able to adapt? Through its extraordinary footage of polar bears, thick-billed murres, bowhead whales, muskox and caribou Lords of the Arctic permits us to observe the impact of climate change on the wildlife of the North. The world of the polar bear, a symbol of the Arctic's strength and vulnerability, is tied to the changing seasons of ice and light and, like all life in the Arctic, is directly impacted by climate change. As their home slowly melts away, will they and their unique world disappear as well? Arctic Mission is a collection of five documentary films that explore the impact of global warming on Canada's North.
