Eco Explorer: Arctic Oasis

Intro
Few climates could be so unforgiving. And few so challenging for man. Though it may seem as if only polar bears and walruses inhabit the Canadian Arctic territory of Nunavut, about 27,000 Inuit people also call this region home. Caribou supply fur for their coats, seals energy-rich meat for their food. Yet, ultimately, all human actions in this remote land must bend to the Arctic's will. It is an understanding on which survival depends.
