Off the southwest coast of Greenland, artist Maria Coryell-Martin ( and scientist Dr. Kristin Laidre recorded the effects of sea ice loss on narwhals and polar bears at Baffin Bay. While scientists observed their health and movements, Corywell-Martin illustrated the environmental and scientific process with a captivating human touch.

“We are fortunate to host this incredible lecture presentation,” said Marine Science Center Executive Director Janine Boire. “We want to inspire communities to work together for the health of our oceans and it starts with building awareness. Imaging the Arctic is a perfect example of marrying art and science to communicate the effects of climate change on native species.” Climate change, toxics, and plastics are the main foci of PTMSC’s Gone Green? Go Blue! Campaign to raise awareness and inspire collective action to improve ocean health.
