WWF is supporting the research of the Catlin Arctic Survey. This year’s research includes an expedition across the ice, as well as an ice base, both in the far north of Canada. The main purpose of the mission is to gather data on the changing Arctic Ocean currents.

Read an article on the WWF Global Arctic Programme website announcing the launch of the 2011 Catlin Arctic.

"Changes in the ocean currents have the capacity to significantly destabilise the climate in the northern half of the planet. Such changes to currents would also alter where biological productivity occurs in the ocean, and would therefore be directly felt because of significant changes to fisheries in the North Atlantic."
Martin Sommerkorn*
