What’s at risk?
Arctic whales, including narwhals and belugas, are potential victims of seismic blasting — as are the Inuit people who depend on this unique ecosystem for their traditional way of life. Access to local, healthy food from hunting, fishing, and gathering is under threat in a community that already faces high rates of food insecurity.
The ThreatSeismic blasting — a process of firing loud sonic explosions through the ocean to find oil — is threatening life in the Arctic. All life.
Inuit from Clyde River, Nunavut, have inspired the global Save The Arctic movement to join their fight. They have successfully stopped seismic blasting for the past two years — but their Arctic home is still under threat. Together, we must ensure dangerous seismic blasting is never again permitted in these fragile waters.
The solution is in the sun.
By installing the community’s first solar energy system, Clyde River is taking decisive action against the fossil fuel industry, showing us the path to stopping climate change and how to build the clean, renewable energy economy we need.
Who’s on board?
Aboard Greenpeace ship the Arctic Sunrise, which is traveling to Clyde River to support the community’s fight to defend their home, are a few special guests. Actor and activist Emma Thompson and her daughter Gaia Wise will join Greenpeace to learn more about life in the Arctic from the people who call it home. Mitchell Moffit and Gregory Brown from the wildly popular YouTube channel AsapSCIENCE are also traveling with Greenpeace to learn about Clyde River’s battle to protect their home and to share this brave community’s story with the world!
