Responding to local observations of changing weather patterns in the area, local hunters and Elders partnered with researchers to understand and monitor these changes and to provide better weather information to residents. The project began in 2009 and continues today with a focus on mentoring youth on the land to learn weather-related knowledge and land skills and bridging environmental modeling and climate scient with Inuit knowledge. Ittaq has led a number of research and monitoring projects over the years, ranging from extensive placenames mapping, to sea ice monitoring, to oral history research and more.
