The Arctic region is warming twice as fast as the rest of the planet. The impact of rising temperatures and changing weather patterns is already affecting the musk oxen populations of the north.

Looking on the world map Fair Isle looks like a small island, a “rock” just five kilometers long, wide just over two, to cross almost in one breath, from the north to the south lighthouse.
Protected from the equidistant embrace of the archipelagos of Orkney and Shetland, Fair Isle floats between the North Sea and the Atlantic Ocean, on the crossroads of one of the most important migratory route of Europe.
