Three Inuit hunters - Gedion Kristiansen, Kristian Eipe, and Ilanguaq Qaernguaq - scan the sea ice near a lead for the seals lying near the breathing holes they have opened in the thinner ice. A changing climate - which shows itself in warming temperatures, earlier summers, later winters, and shrinking and thinning sea ice - threatens the livelihoods and traditions of some of the last subsistence hunters on Earth, the Polar Inuit communities of far Northwest Greenland.
