Grocery store manager Josef Ahmaogak is surprised that the traditional knowledge of the Inupiat people never shows up in reports. “Their science always goes first, but we know our surroundings better than anyone. Different organisations and the oil industry have listened to us, but what we say is never told on printed paper,” says Ahmaogak.Locations:Alaska-Arctic-Arctic Coastal Plain-Chukchi Sea-North America-United States of America-WainwrightDate:16 Oct, 2011Credit:© Rose Sjölander / 70°Maximum size:5532px X 3688pxRestrictions:NO FUNDRAISINGKeywords:Beaches-Children-Coastlines-Cold-Day-Fun-Inupiat-KWCI (GPI)-Landscapes-Oil exploration-Outdoors-Playing (activity)-Primary school age (5-9)-Save the Arctic (campaign title)-Seas-Shell (commercial business)-Two people-WaterShoot:70° North - Arctic Documentation70° North is a multimedia project documenting the impact of climate change and resources exploration in the Arctic.Shell's plans to drill offshore in the Alaskan Arctic in 2012 has divided the native communities who now stand at a crossroads between continued benefits from industry generated revenues and protecting the marine environment they have depended on for thousands of years. Shell's proposed offshore drill site is in the path of the bowhead whale's migration route. Many Inupiat hunters are concerned about Shell's lack of spill response capabilities if licenses are granted to drill offshore in the Arctic's Beaufort and Chukchi seasGreenpeace is campaigning for a global sanctuary to be declared around the uninhabited area of the North Pole to save the Arctic from attempts by oil companies to exploit the region’s resources for short term profit.
