Archipelago East Of Quebec Melting Away

Posted on | March 29, 2010 | Comments Off

The warmest winter on record is causing the ice to melt in Canada. The lack of ice has caused thousands of seals to breed elsewhere. The island economy is expected to lose 6 million dollars. Baby seals are dying.

Fishers and hunters are quite concerned about the changes. A resident said, “There are changes happening on this island. We see the erosion. We see the water level rising. We see lots of things. I really hope that all of this will be over soon… because otherwise it is going to be the end of the world pretty soon.”
