Learn how climate change is shifting the delicate balance of Arctic food webs in this video from NATURE: “Arctic Wolf Pack.” Warmer temperatures are leading to rainfall in the winter, which creates a crust of ice over the snow covered ground. Arctic herbivores can’t break through the icy crust to the food below, unlike the regular snow cover which they can dig through.
Support materials are available, including discussion questions and teaching tips. For more resources from NATURE, check out the collection page.
