Sustainable Ecosystems: Arctic

Workshop at the Museum

Recommended for
Ontario: grade 9
Quebec: secondary cycle 2.

Warmth, water, food, light—nothing comes easily for life in the Arctic.

Meet with one of our Arctic-research scientists. Learn about their work and career path and get to ask them questions.

Activities in the Canada Goose Arctic Gallery explore the fragile ecosystem's balance of biotic and abiotic factors and demonstrate the connection between a rapidly changing Arctic and the sustainability of ecosystems everywhere.

Duration: 50 minutes.
