‘Expedition Arctic’ follows the travels of four Canadian Museum of Nature scientists – Jennifer Doubt, Dr. David Gray, Paul Hamilton and Kieran Shepherd – on the 2012 Students on Ice Arctic Youth Expedition across Nunavut and western Greenland. They conducted research and educated youth about the floral, faunal and paleontological richness and history of the Arctic region.
The scientists were joined on this exciting and educational adventure by Expedition Leader and Founder of Students on Ice Geoff Green, two students (Dang-Dang Gruben and Marine Poirier-Defoy) and a group of Canadian and international youth, elders, artists, scientists, musicians and leaders.
The Arctic specimens featured on the site are housed in the Canadian Museum of Nature’s research and collections facility, at the museum’s National Heritage Campus, in Gatineau, Quebec. The museum has been collecting and studying the natural history of Canada’s Arctic for 100 years.
