During a hunting trip, Damien Ishlutak (left), 10, and his father Levi (right), 35, hunt for seals from their boat in Pangnirtung, Canada on Nov. 14, 2013. With six children to feed and support, Levi often struggles to put food on the table, living day to day, and pay check to pay check. As communities in Nunavut are completely cut off from the rest of Canada by road, food and supplies are shipped at an extremely high cost by boat and plane, leading to exorbitant prices at the grocery stores. The Inuit have traditionally depended on hunting to provide food, shelter, and warmth for their families in the harsh arctic environment. Hunting provides much-needed sustenance for families. However, environmental groups often criticize the Inuit for hunting species claimed to have dwindling populations such as narwhal, belugas, seals, and polar bears. The current debate highlights the clash between traditional hunting practices and modern conservation science. (Ed Ou/Reportage by Getty Images)
