Design a poster for a campaign about Arctic pollution showing:
- Where it comes from
- Who it's affecting
- What can be done
- Arctic Monitoring and Assessment Programme (AMAP)
one of the working groups of the Arctic Council, AMAP monitors Arctic pollution and offers scientific advice to Arctic governments on how to deal with the contaminants.
For more information about pollution and Arctic wildlife see:
- download the panda.org report: Killing them softly.. Health effects in Arctic wildlife linked to chemical exposure
- The Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants
- Research at the Norwegian Polar Institute has found that 'old' POPS such as DTT and PCBS are decreasing but other chemical toxins or 'new' POPS are rising.
