Global Warming Threatens Caribou

In this video segment adapted from the series Arctic Mission, learn about climate change and its impact on the migration of Canada's barren-ground caribou. Caribou time their migration to benefit from advantageous feeding conditions, safety from predators, and relief from insects. Their routes are typically determined by weather factors. However, as global warming continues, traditional migration timings and pathways are leading more and more caribou to their death.

This media asset was adapted from Arctic Mission: "Lords of the Arctic" by National Film Board of Canada.
