Can Geo Talks: Spring 2011

“Searching for Arctic Eden”
Explore Canada’s High Arctic with adventurer Jerry Kobalenko

Writer-photographer Jerry Kobalenko has travelled more kilometres in Canada’s High Arctic than any living person. Over the past 20 years, he has explored Canada north of 75º latitude, by foot, ski, kayak and ship. He considers the High Arctic his spiritual home and his passion for the North is evident in his photography and stories.

In his presentation on April 27, Kobalenko will share his love of ice caps and glaciers, fossil forests, and the flora and fauna at the top of the world, from endangered Peary caribou to herds of thousands of arctic hare. He'll recount close encounters with polar bears, explore the meaning of adventure and our connection to the North, and give a traveller’s insights into infamous Arctic tragedies and controversies. And he’ll introduce us to the subtleties of a misunderstood Eden.
