In the Field
Current Efforts that Make a Difference
There are people and organizations making a difference right now - scientists, politicians and environmentalists. They are initiators who have identified issues and concerns that need immediate attention.
A study to learn more about the Emperor Penguins of the Snow Hill Island rookery. A program instituted by the Governor of Svalbard will clean up Norway's Arctic islands. A University of Calgary study to remove excess carbon dioxide. The Last Ocean project Robert Bateman's education program for youngsters.
BBC-The Frozen Planet
When the BBC & Discovery Channel decided to explore Antarctica for their popular Frozen Planet series, they turned to Quark Expeditions. No other travel company does only polar travel and features more polar scientists, historians and biologists on its trips. Our Expedition Leaders know these regions -- in fact two of them are Nobel Prize Winners. Watch the Video.
Quark Expeditons welcome information about other efforts underway. Please send an e-mail to us with news about your project.
