BAFFIN ISLAND SUMMER EXPEDITION 2010
In the Summer of 2010 I helped guide an education expedition to Baffin Island.
Organised by Antony Jinman for his social enterprise company Education Through Expediiton, the expediiton ventured into the same part of Baffin Island as our Baffin Island 2008 expedition. The expedition took nine students and/or recent graduates to experience the Arctic: it's environment, people and the troubles that it is faced with.
Four weeks in the Canadian Arctic, trekking one of the most spectacular valleys in the world.
We spent 5 days and nights living on one of the glaciers.
Our journey up the glacier was abruptly stopped by this giant chasm that stretched the width of the glacier.

Arctic Carp are dried in the strong Arctic sun for later.
A polar bear tooth peaks out of a tear in a black bag. This skull kept by the hamlet science officer offers valuable information on the life of the bear. He was killed a few months earlier for coming too close to the community.
A traditional dish for the summer. Arctic char is gutted, chopped and boiled in sea water.
