Produced by Oceans North and its partners, the atlas provides an overview of the marine mammals, seabirds, fish and other wildlife that thrive in our northern waters – and highlights the importance of a healthy ecosystem for the people who live there.
The atlas includes seven chapters with a total of 67 images, 77 maps, 33 scientific illustrations and three food-web graphics. Oceans North and its partners hope that the atlas will support conservation efforts to protect this spectacular Arctic ecosystem.
