ArcticNet 2014 confirms Canadian Arctic research is on the rise

Well, this is cool. Get it? Cool? Hahahaha... I sleigh myself!

Ten years of research has created greater understanding about how climate change is affecting physical and biological ecosystems and the impacts on biodiversity, species and people. Ten years has also garnered more funding and awards, of particular note are the Arctic Inspiration Award, the Nasivvik awards and the W. Garfield Weston Foundation.

What’s even more encouraging is the number of northern people involved in Arctic research. Inuit and First Nations people are leading research projects, collaborating with colleagues, serving as ArcticNet committee members and actively participating in the conference.
