Photograph by @PaulNicklen // The relationship humans have with dogs in the Arctic is deeply intertwined. Hardworking sled dogs enable quick, efficient travel across an icy, unforgiving landscape. It is an often misunderstood partnership that, when witnessed, deserves reverence, especially in the circumstances I have experienced. Greenlandic hunters are famous for their ability to navigate thin ice as they hunt throughout the winter, but sea ice has changed drastically over the past twenty years. As the ice thins at alarming rates, travel becomes increasingly dangerous, and often devastating, for hunters. Here, Inuit hunters quickly figure out a way to get their sled dogs back onto thicker ice after falling through. The loss of one of these sled dogs was a harsh reminder of the far-reaching consequences of climate change. #FollowMe at @PaulNicklen to learn how we can turn the tide.
