The Race to Save the Arctic

Elisabeth Kruger

Elisabeth Kruger, Manager, Arctic Wildlife January, 2021

The Arctic is a region like no other in the world. Diverse landscapes—sea ice, coastal wetlands, upland tundra, mountains, wide rivers, and the sea itself—are home to more than 4 million people and an abundance of wildlife. However, due to climate change, mining, shipping, oil and gas development, and overfishing, the Arctic faces an uncertain future. In this webinar, hear from Elisabeth Kruger, WWF’s Manager for Arctic Wildlife, as she talks about her work to save iconic species like polar bears, bowhead whales, and narwhals in this majestic corner of the world.
