Title: Uummannaq, Greenland - Life on the Ice

In Uummannaq, Greenland fishers and hunters are struggling with climate change and other environmental impacts that are changing their lives. The sea is not freezing enough in winter to form the thick ice needed for hunters to travel around the fjord on dog sleds. The thin ice that did form on the sea locked their boats in the harbor, further restricting their movements.
