McGill Polar Scientist Michael Becker - Arctic Wildlife in a Warming World

Thu, 2014-12-18 12:20

I’m a polar scientist at McGill University in Montreal, Canada, studying how our planet’s changing climate is affecting the polar desert ecosystem of the Canadian High Arctic. I joined a team of wolf researchers and a BBC film crew to spend three months in a tent on the tundra as we tried to document the lives of a pack of wild wolves.
