Forces of Change: The Arctic: A Friend Acting Strangely

April 15, 2006 – November 12, 2006

Museum: Natural History Museum

Location: 2nd Floor, Southwest Wing, off Rotunda Balcony (Hall 30)

This exhibition explores dramatic changes in the Arctic's climate and weather patterns during the past half century. This environmental instability makes it more difficult for Arctic residents -- both people and wildlife -- to plan and adapt for the future. In addition, changes in the Arctic's environment may be an early warning signal of climate changes in other parts of the world in the coming decades, raising an important question: How should we prepare for change?
