Arctic and Antarctic

Beginning in 2007, several journeys to these remote and pristine wilderness areas with their frozen landscapes, diverse colours, moods and distinct wildlife continue to inspire including a recent journey through the magnificent fjords and coastline of the Svalbard Archipelago.

Our current climate crises underscore the urgency and importance of protecting the overall health of the Arctic and Antarctic regions, including their wildlife.
