About this project

Project Dates: December 2018 – January 2020

Details: The Ringed Seal is one of Canada’s most iconic marine mammals, making its home on the sea ice found throughout the Arctic. Here it will use its big claws to build lairs (like a snow fort!) underneath the snow, where it will have its babies in the spring. Ringed Seals spend most of their time on or around sea ice, and most will only have their babies on ice, which means this habitat is critical to their survival – but unfortunately it’s also at risk due to climate change. That’s why we need your help! Earth Rangers is working with the Weston Foundation and the University of Manitoba on a project that will help us:

  • Identify the most important habitat characteristics (like the distance to shore, the amount of open water nearby, and the amount of food available) that Ringed Seals need to thrive
  • Learn more about how climate change might impact this habitat

Better understanding the habitat the Ringed Seal needs to survive, and learning more about how climate change might affect this habitat, will help us identify important areas in the Arctic that should be protected so the Ringed Seal can thrive for years to come!
