Climate Watch Shorts: Georgina Island First Nation

Climate Watch Shorts

The First Nation received funding for a three-year climate study in 2012 and has since been collecting the memories and observances of elders. Like many communities, Georgina Island is struggling with the effects of climate change today. Milder winters mean the community's ferry runs longer and the lake ice is weaker, both of which have ripple effects throughout the island.
