Arctic animals cope with climate change
MetadataShow full item record
When it comes to coping with climate change in the Arctic region, which is warming at three times the global average, some animals are more equal than others. Migrating Barnacle geese that fly north to lay eggs amid the Norwegian Arctic’s craggy peaks and melting glaciers are adapting very well, thank you, at least for now. Reindeer, foxes and polar bears, however, are having a harder time of it. Just finding enough to eat can be a struggle. The geese — which leave Scotland each year by the thousands — have come like clockwork since time immemorial in the Spring to Spitsbergen and other islands in the Svalbard archipelago to nest.
