Pew's U.S. Arctic Program developed a series of videos that illustrate the issues, wildlife, and people that life along Alaska's coast - GreenInfo made an interactive map as a point of point of entry to those stories.

The Pew Arctic Program mission is:

"We promote science-based decision making for America’s Arctic Ocean – the Beaufort and Chukchi seas off Alaska’s north coast. This includes making sure that biologically important areas are protected from development and that indigenous communities are involved in planning efforts. We also work to ensure that, if offshore development occurs, it is in the right place, at the right time, with the right, Arctic-tested oil spill prevention and response measures in place. In addition, we promote permanent protection for Bristol Bay and its world-class fisheries in the Bering Sea off southwest Alaska."

GreenInfo developed a simple web map application that allows the program to display links to short videos that focus on key stories - interact with the map and watch the videos here: http://www.mapsportal.org/pew/OceansNorth/
