Video Series: Working with indigenous knowledge
Earlier this month, we brought you Part 1 of our documentary series looking at the impact of climate change on the Arctic Canadian community of Cambridge Bay:
Is climate change making the muskoxen sick on Victoria Island?.
In Part 2: How indigenous knowledge is changing what we know about the Arctic, released this week, we look at the partnership between the community and the University of Calgary, to find out more about what’s happening to the muskoxen on the island.
In this section, we bring you a series of videos looking at the different ways the community and the scientists work together.
