WWF Arctic Council Scorecard

Biodiversity

Biodiversity conservation in the Arctic is a major challenge, given ecosystems are in climate-driven (and increasingly, development-driven) flux and typically have simple food web structures. The magnitude and speed of change, along with growing threats, challenges the ability of Arctic biodiversity to provide ecosystem services to Arctic peoples.
