Leisure boating on the West-coast of Greenland

Year: 2013
From collection: West-Greenland
Taken by: Peter Prokosch
Most of the about 55 000 inhabitants of Greenland are living in settlements on the West-coast where the Golf stream keeps the waters open all year round. Modern times have changed much of the original culture of the Greenlandic Inuits. Their life is not so much different anymore than that of people from other (e.g. Scandinavian) northern coastal settlements. As people with their boats have access to every corner of the West-coast, wildlife and nature conservation management are facing different challenges than in the past.
