Hudson Bay is losing ice faster than any other part of the Arctic.

 

That doesn’t just make it harder for polar bears to hunt. It also means there are more ships in Canada’s great inland sea.

 

The federal government has identified a huge stretch of Hudson Bay that could be protected as a National Marine Conservation Area (NMCA).

 

This could help ensure the survival of belugas, polar bears, sea birds and other species which are under increasing pressure from the changes in the Arctic.

 

Federal protection could also help maintain and enhance local livelihoods, bolster the region’s tourism industry, create new jobs and bring infrastructure investments.

 

Sadly, the process is stalled.
