Polar bears, walruses, narwhals, sea angels and large marine mammals cross his path. Witnessing the magnificence of these endangered landscapes and the creatures that inhabit them, visitors will also become aware of their fragility. Below the Arctic Ice with Mario Cyr  will be presented at Québec City Convention Center from December 18, 2021 to February 13, 2022.
