Hunting is one of the most important land skills in the Arctic, and continues to be an important source of income and food for many people and communities. The Hunter Education Series facilitates the transmission of knowledge regarding proper hunting techniques, safety, and animal behaviour. It will also help to preserve traditional Inuit hunting knowledge and the value of environmental stewardship.

Hunting Seal in the Summer is a guide to hunting one of the most important game animals for Inuit. Advice is given for summertime seal hunting from a boat, including practical information on preparing for the hunt, ensuring boat safety, different kinds of seal and where to find them, skinning the animal, preserving the meat, and safe firearm operation. It also includes information about traditional Inuit hunting beliefs and taboos, and reflections on how to keep the seal population stable and healthy.

The book is paired with a link to an online video that contains actual hunting footage and interviews with hunters, Elders, and wildlife officers. This unique resource was developed in collaboration with the Nunavut Department of Environment, Inhabit Education, Taqqut Productions, and the Amarok Hunters and Trappers Organization.
