Ocean acidification linked to climate change is rapidly changing Pacific walrus habitat and population, which in turn is impacting Alaska Native people dependent on the animals for food and cultural identity.
Why Indigenous Voices Matter
Native voices are important. Our lifeways are tied to local surroundings, making us the first environmental refugees, and our cultural stories have embraced sustainability long before the term entered public discourse. To add your voice, consider a submission to an Earthzine theme about Indigenous Perspectives on Environmental Change.
