​As a child growing up along the Bering Sea in Alaska, Clyde Oxerok hunted walrus with village elders, relying on solid sea ice for nine months of the year. But as Arctic temperatures have risen, the ice is now dangerously thin, and only appears for three months.That’s transforming the foods that indigenous communities hunt, forcing them to find new prey as the temperature steadily rises.

In the After the Ice series, elders from villages in the Bering Sea region of Alaska share with Terra their observations of their melting world, how they’re adapting, and their vision for an uncertain future.
