First to Go (polar bear)

The majestic polar bear has sadly come to represent the symbol of climate change and its harmful effects.. According to researchers, their numbers in the surroundings of Churchill have declined and the animals are loosing weight.

In short, the noble animal is not doing well. However, the inhabitants of Arviat, a small inuit village located a few hundred kilometres north of Churchill, see things differently. To them, there are as many as before and appear in good health. Who is telling the truth?
