The remains are placed into skip containers and taken out to Point Barrow so polar bears will not be drawn close to the community by the smell and therefore avoid human conflict with the increasing number of stranded polar bears.Locations:Alaska-Arctic-Arctic Coastal Plain-Barrow (Alaska)-North America-United States of AmericaDate:11 Oct, 2011Credit:© Rose Sjölander / 70°Maximum size:4606px X 3071pxRestrictions:Ok for Greenpeace use and for approved external Greenpeace campaign related use.

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.
