The Arctic

Our stories take place in the Arctic, one of the coldest, inhospitable, and remote places on Earth.

The beauty of the Arctic, its precious and fragile nature, its critical role in maintaining a stable climate for the planet, and the rapid rate of change that is occurring there must all be conveyed to the general public. Here, through digital story telling, we put a human face on science, life, societies, and the natural world in the Arctic.
