Follow the incredible life journey of Bowhead whales in the Arctic ocean and raise awareness of our human progress’s impact on their lives. The inspiring voiceover for this spot is revered and renowned Cree/Métis actresses Tantoo Cardinal. Data provided by WWF reveals the growth in shipping traffic in Arctic sea lanes and points out that as sea ice recedes due to rapid climate change, more ocean areas are opening up to shipping, exacerbating an already dire situation.
