North Pole 2010 Expedition, The Science and The Team
From 15.03.2010 to 10.06.2010 - Status: ongoing
According to Antony Jinman himself, the expedition that he will be undertaking to the North Pole this spring 2010 is his most important adventure to date. Jinman is one of the few Britons ever to have taken on this particular challenge.
Antony Jinman already has a solid reputation in the world of polar adventure. Ever since he first became involved with the polar regions, Jinman has always been -and will always remain- a staunch defender of the concept of "Learn by Adventure". He communicates with children all round the world through his interactive expeditions. He also aims to make young people aware of the vitally important role played by the polar regions in keeping the global climate properly balanced. As well as of the dramatic changes that the peoples of the Far North are experiencing as a result of global warming.
This time around, the man from Plymouth will be embarking on the trek between Ward Hunt and the North Pole in the company of two young women: Sarah McNair Landry, who lives on Baffin Island, and Linda Beilharz, who became the first Australian woman to ski from the coast of Antarctica to the South Pole.
There is, of course, a scientific side to Jinman's expedition in which he will be assisted by specialists from Plymouth University. Thus far, though, this expedition has not yet been fully confirmed. Jinman is still seeking sponsors to enable it to take place.
