The Canada’s Arctic exhibit tells the story of the changes experienced by the people, land and animals. It engages visitors with stories of the melting Arctic and its impact on people and its uniquely adapted animals.
Canada’s Arctic is vast, diverse and changing. It is home to one of the largest archipelagos in the world and to animals well-adapted to living with ice. This exhibit shows how climate change is affecting this vast, remote area.
If you think the Arctic is a desolate place, you’d be surprised at how much life thrives within and beneath the sea ice that’s drifting on the ocean.
Canada’s Arctic is undergoing some of the fastest and most dramatic changes in the world. Researchers desperately race against time to document the diversity of life in this region, as the sea ice thins and shrinks around them.
The Arctic underwater bursts with colour, and we’re showcasing some of these marine animals in our exhibits.
