This panel of my mural titled "We Are One" is dedicated to the Greenland ice sheet, and highlights several animals that have been affected by environmental disasters like the melting of the ice caps as a result of climate change. As the Greenland ice sheet melts, the animals there are forced to other parts of the country they wouldn't normally travel to. Many animals rely on the sea ice to hunt, and cannot easily adapt to living on land. The animals featured are the polar bear, the walrus, and a mother harp seal and her pup. The pink flower is called dwarf fireweed, and is Greenland's national flower.
