Already three weeks on Baffin Island

Published on 15.03.2007 - Global Warming 101 Expedition

It has now been nearly three weeks that Will Steger's team has been off discovering the depths of the Baffin island. Three men and two women, along with three Inuit guides, have decided to pursue this adventure:

  • Will steger: foreman
  • John Stetson: expedition manager
  • Ed Viesturs: one of the most renown American mountaineers
  • Elizabeth Andre and Abby Fenton: educational programme
  • Théo Ikummaq: guide - exploration
  • Lukie Airutet and Simon Oamaniq: guide - hunting

You can follow the expedition's progression and read interesting daily dispatches on the Global Warming 101 Web site. The most original aspect of Will Steger's approach is that, during the 2200 km and the 4 months the trek should last, the expedition will focus on learning about the fate of the region's populations as well as learn how these populations are undergoing the climate change which they have been witnessing for much longer than we have. Since this quest centres on the human being, the expedition started off by interviewing the Inuit guides accompanying them.

They have now reached the town of Pangnirtung.
