« The ghostly winter silence had given way to the great spring murmur of awakening life. This murmur arose from all the land, fraught with the joy of living. » wrote Jack London in the Call of the Wild. Can you hear it?
Lancaster Sound, an important passage through the Arctic Archipelago located in Northern Canada's territory, is one of the most biologically active marine areas. Most often uncovered by ice, it is also one of the most important migration sites for large cetaceans, such as narwhals, belugas, bowhead whales, walruses, as well as ringed, bearded and harp seals. Confronted with the consequences of global warming and the melting ice, the aim of the "Ocean North Campaign", is to designate the Lancaster Sound as a National Marine Conservation Area, therefore prohibiting undersea mining which has heavy consequences on the ecosystems.
