The decline in seasonal sea ice affects more than just arctic communities. That ice helps regulate world temperatures. Less ice means coastal communities are at risk of rising sea levels and coastal erosion. The decline also makes it harder for arctic residents to travel and hunt the food they depend on. On the next Talk of Alaska, we’ll discuss the latest information on ice conditions and how the people of the arctic are working to adapt to change.
