Feature Image: “Projects in developing extraction of fossil fuels, such as oil and natural gas are underway in several places in the Arctic – both on land and in the sea. The fuels are to be transported by both land and sea pipelines, as well as shipped on water. The development of these activities threaten natural habitats, in hotspots for conservation and wildlife. This map displays some of the latest hotspots with current or proposed development, together with a human impact analysis, from the GLOBIO programme. Hotspots highlighted on this graphic are the Mackenzie Valley, Prudhoe Bay and the Kuparuk oilfield (Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, ANWR), Northern Norway (Barents Sea) and the Pechora oilfields and the Yamal.” “Arctic development hotspots” by GRIDArendal is licensed under CC BY-NC-SA 2.0.
