Travel down to the West Antarctic Peninsula, one of the fastest warming locations on Earth. The rising temperatures are decreasing the amount of sea ice present and changes are now rippling through the food web. We discuss the findings of a 30-year effort to document the changing ecology of this region and reflect on how it provides a picture of the future of polar regions on our warming planet.
