The Arctic is an inhospitable environment, but lots of animals and organisms call it home. In this activity, you will create a food web, exploring and linking Arctic wildlife.
It is often quite tricky to ‘see’ all the relationships between the different plants and animals in an ecosystem and so scientists use the idea of a food web to show how different life in the Arctic is connected.
As you start to place the different organisms in place, you will start to see the web develop. The Arctic requires a balance between the different living things. If any of the individual animals or plants are affected by human activity or natural events, then the whole Arctic is affected.
