Ear Mountain rises behind the cemetery of Shishmaref, Alaska on an unusually warm and sunny day in February Shishmaref is a threatened community. Sea level rise and ice loss is causing the island to lose feet to the Chukchi Sea every year. This community will disappear beneath the sea in the next 30-50 years.
