By looking at the interconnectedness of the eider duck and the Inuits who live on the Belcher Islands in Hudson Bay, we can see how Arctic sea life is affected by events taking place elsewhere. Hydroelectric dams are changing water patterns. We can see the changes affect the daily lives of these island people. I hope it will make us all stop and think about what we are doing to our environment.
