Climate change opening up the door for invasive species in the North

Paulatuk, Northwest Territories, Canada

Invasive species are a more important issue as increasingly warm winters and wetter summers help grasslands and forests in the North grow like never before, changing the very fabric of the North’s ecosystem.

A warming north has meant animals are showing up in places they rarely have before, like the moose shown here in Paulatuk, N.W.T.
