Arctic Change

George Divoky didn’t set out to study climate change, but climate change found him and his Arctic seabirds. This series followed his 44th and 45th field seasons studying Black Guillemots on Cooper Island, 20 miles east of Utqiaġvik, Alaska — exploring life on the front lines of change. We supported his work by publishing field updates and posts for seabird community, sea ice scientists, and humans living through climate change.
