The 2022 expansion of Arctic BIOSCAN’s biodiversity monitoring activities was made possible by support from Polar Knowledge Canada and the SOI Foundation, which together enabled the hiring of field technicians in four communities across Nunavut. These Nunavummiut youth have brought new energy and local knowledge, and it has been exciting to have them on board this field season!
