About Visions of the Arctic

Of all the places Earthjustice works to protect, few places are as iconic and misunderstood as the Arctic. At best, it conjures images of a distant, icy land sparsely inhabited by polar bears and walruses—beautiful, perhaps, but quite removed from our everyday lives. At worst, it’s a frozen wasteland devoid of life but rich in oil, a place to exploit at will.

Nothing could be further from the truth.

The Arctic is a thriving, diverse landscape filled with life. Here, caribou in the hundreds of thousands still embark on epic migrations across mighty rivers, mountains, and coastal plains. . Here, wetlands, lakes and oceans teem with life, supporting whales, polar bears, seals and waterfowl.. And here, the unique, resilient cultures of native peoples such as the Inupiat and the Gwich’in still embrace a way of life rooted in thousands of years of experience.

Spreading the word about the beauty of the Arctic and its looming threats is very important to Earthjustice. That’s why we’ve teamed with outdoor clothing manufacturer Patagonia and celebrated wildlife photographer Florian Schulz and created a stunning visual presentation of Arctic images.
