Caribou Taste Different Now

Valuable and unique insight to academic literature on climate change

Research | Books at Memorial

Climate change is expected to have a particular impact on the Arctic regions of the world.

Melting permafrost, changing wildlife migration patterns and new species of flora and fauna threaten to forever change the landscape of the North, as well as the lives of its people.

In The Caribou Taste Different Now: Inuit Elders Observe Climate Change, Inuit elders and knowledge holders from eight Canadian Arctic communities — Kugluktuk, Baker Lake, Pangnirtung, and Pond Inlet in Nunavut; Umiujaq, Kangiqsujuaq, and Kangiqsualujjuaq in Nunavik; and Nain in Nunatsiavut — share their observations of climate change, including how it is affecting traditional ways of life.

Paired with scientific analysis of the research findings, this book, co-edited by Memorial biology PhD candidate Laura Siegwart Collier, adds a valuable and unique insight to the academic literature on climate change.

The Caribou Taste Different Now: Inuit Elders Observe Climate Change is published by Nunavut Arctic College and is available to purchase here.
