AN INVITATION FROM WALTER STURGEON
Arctic Waterfowl Expert and Operation Migration Director/Migration Team Member
I invite you to join me and Dave Davenport of EcoQuest Travel on a fabulous trip to Oslo, Norway, and on to the Island of Spitsbergen in the Svalbard Archipelago in the Norwegian Arctic.
This trip, which takes place in August, will allow me to share my previous experiences with arctic wildlife and explorations. Since 1981 I have made 20 trips to the Arctic/Subarctic, including several summers in the Canadian Arctic doing waterfowl research. In my travels have followed and crossed the paths of many arctic biologists, naturalists and explorers, and I look forward to recounting those adventures and sharing my passion for the far north with you.
We will fly in and join our ship in Longyearbyen, the most northern town on earth. As we cruise through the archipelago and circumnavigate the island of Spitsbergen, we will come within ~500 miles of the North Pole. Spitsbergen with its many old whaling stations has a long history as jumping off place for many of Arctic explorers looking for the Northern Sea Route.
Come escape with Dave and me to the land of the polar bear, king of the archipelago. We’ll see them as we travel on our ship through the islands, as well as a diversity of arctic wildlife – both sea and land mammals.
