Caption: Seal hunting. Inuit hunters travelling on a snowmobile pulling a dead ringed seal. Inuit people mostly hunt ringed or bearded seals. The most common method is to lie in wait for a seal to appear from its breathing hole in the ice. The hunter uses a rifle shielded by a white blind and crawls along the ice until he is close enough to shoot. Melting ice and receding glaciers caused by global warming is altering the subsistence lifestyle of many Inuit people and the animals they hunt. Photographed in Baffin Island, Canada.
