The Discovering the Arctic website has been refreshed and updated and is now fully responsive – so you can easily access all of its inspiring resources on any device.
With a fresh clean look, the site contains activities, images, video clips and fact sheets to help you learn about this amazing environment. From the impact of climate change and the latest scientific knowledge about the changing state of the Arctic cryosphere, to wildlife adaptations and the vibrant mix of communities, cultures, languages and traditions that live on the edge of the world, a whole host of topics are covered. The website also features the challenges the Arctic faces, such as tourism and trade, as well as the complex task of governing this region.
Discovering the Arctic was originally developed as a partnership between the Society, the British Antarctic Survey, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and the Scottish Association for Marine Science. The refreshed website has been supported by funding from the Arctic Office/Natural Environment Research Council.
