The teachers are on their way back home

Published on 02.06.2009 - TAE57-58 Fuchs Foundation

The four teachers from the Fuchs Foundation have reached the final point of their adventure without any major problems. Called Dog Camp, it's a tiny dot on Greenland's polar icecap, and it is probably from here that a helicopter will fly in to take them out.

Still with very little information available about their respective scientific programmes, the four teachers from the Fuchs Foundation, Helena Nuna, Nicola Rowland, Andy Stevenson and Danny Golding have now arrived at the final point of their crossing.

They have written a great deal about their experiences with the dogs and about driving dog sleds, with some of them travelling on skis alongside the sledges, while the others wrestled with the task of guiding a pack of huskies across the ice and snow.

No doubt within a day or two they will each fill up the pages of their personal websites and soon we will have all the news and explanations we need about the results of their scientific observations.

The next expedition sponsored by the Fuchs Foundation is scheduled to take place in the Antarctic in 2010-11.
