Cruise into Grise Fjord: Ellesmere Island, The Canadian High Arctic
Yes, we are now in Canadian High Arctic waters and landed in Grise Fjord where Customs Officials had been flown in to clear the ship - how unusual...
Take note of the rough shore landing in video and my favorite Royal Canadian Mountie. Do any viewers remember Rocky the Flying Squirrel cartoons with Dudley Do-Right, the RCM, his girl friend Nell, Boris and Natasha? That's all I could think of after spotting this tall, stalwart Mountie on the beach.
Enough of that. Welcome to the Canadian High Arctic!
Canadian High Arctic Experience
Out in the Canadian High Arctic, 800 kilometers above the arctic circle, the wildlife is spectacular. From the Arctic Watch Lodge you can spot musk ox, arctic foxes, polar bears and hundreds of beluga whales that pass by this location each year. They swim so close to the shore that you can get within a few metres of them.

Polar Bear and Glaciers in the Canadian High Arctic
Passengers on the Sea Explorer Expedition Cruise saw the majority of polar bears in Canadian High Arctic territory and let me tell you; it's not easy to zoom in on a tiny spot 100s of feet away walking on land or from a bobbing zodiac. Frustrating to the max and I had severe camera lens remorse as those with professional equipment snapped away. Even so, I don't know how they avoided camera shake...
The best polar bear experience took place in the Croker Island area off Devon Island when a bear swam from one berg to another and then stood motionless over what we think was a seal hole. Such an incredible experience!

Welcome Onboard The Sea Explorer Cruise: W. Greenland and Canadian High Arctic
Greenland is the world's largest island and more than 80% is covered in ice. Marine Steve and I embarked on our Quark In The Footsteps of Franklin cruise in Kangerlussuaq and prepared to see who knows what on the voyage because one never knows what's coming their way.
The itinerary is only a reference point to what may be seen since the ice conditions in Polar Regions, flora, fauna literally come and go with the flow.
The Sea Explorer is a luxury all-suite ship with an ice-strengthened hull that carries 111 passengers and sister to the Sea Spirit which we sailed on during our Spitsbergen cruise. Are you ready? We are...

Cruise to Greenland aboard icebreaker Kapitan Khlebnikov
This video, which describes a trip taken in August 2016 to Greenland, differs from my usual videos in that it was taken on a Russian icebreaker instead of in Venture. But even an icebreaker has much in common with smaller vessels which take to the high seas and there are features on Flemings which owe their origins to features spotted on larger ships.

Polar Bear Encounter in Canadas High Arctic | National Geographic
Off the coast of Canada's Baffin Island, polar bears cavort and prowl the ice in search of food. Ice floes are a natural habitat for polar bears, but as the ice melts due to a warming climate, the species faces an uncertain future. Naturalists aboard the National Geographic Explorer share insights about polar bears and their changing habitat.

Eocene Vertebrate Fauna and Flora in Canadas High Arctic
Dr. Jaelyn Eberle, University of Colorado, talks about Eocene plants and animals in Canada's High Arctic.
Eocene sediments for the Eureka Sound Group in Canada’s Arctic Archipelago preserve evidence of lush rain forests. The Eocene Epoch, 56 - 33.9 million years ago, was characterized by the rapid diversification of mammals. Alligators, turtles, birds and a large diversity of mammals, including early primates, tapirs, and hippo-like Coryphodon, inhabited the rain forests of the Eocene.
These ecosystems reflect a greenhouse world and may be our best means to predict what environmental changes are in store for the future Arctic if current climate change goes unchecked.
In her presentation, Dr. Eberle discusses the historical and geographic context of Arctic fossil localities and provide an overview of Eocene Arctic vertebrate animals and plants, and the environments they lived in.
Dr. Eberle and her colleagues’ research suggests that several climate-sensitive animals, including alligators, turtles, and sharks, had past environmental tolerances greater than their living descendants. Consequently, there is a need to test the adaptability of these animals to future climate change.

The Peoples Of Grise Fiord & Resolute: Inuit/Inuktitut - Nunavut - 20th Century Forced Relocation
This video is for the The Peoples Of Grise Fiord & Resolute: Inuit/Inuktitut - Nunavut .. and the 20th Century Forced Relocation of their communities.., their history, culture and affiliations. There are also videos in this channel for over 170 more North & South American Indigenous Tribes & First Nations Peoples.
Nunavut.., (ˈnuːnəvuːt NOO-nə-voot),Inuktitut syllabics: ᓄᓇᕗᑦ is the newest, largest and most northerly territory of Canada. It was separated officially from the Northwest Territories on April 1st 1999, via the Nunavut Act and the Nunavut Land Claims Agreement Act,though the boundaries had been drawn, in 1993. The creation of Nunavut resulted in the first major change to Canada's political map, since incorporating the province of Newfoundland, in 1949.
Grise Fiord (Inuktitut: ᐊᐅᔪᐃᑦᑐᖅ) the place that never thaws', is an Inuit hamlet in the Qikiqtaaluk Region, ,,in the territory of Nunavut, Canada. Despite its low population, (129 residents, as of the Canada 2016 Census),it is the largest community and only public community on Ellesmere Island, which also makes it the northernmost public community in Canada. It is also one of the coldest inhabited places, in the world, with an average yearly temperature of −16.5 °C (2.3 °F).
The settlement (and Resolute) was created by the Canadian government, in 1953, in conjunction with a forced relocation, partly to assert sovereignty in the High Arctic, during the Cold War. In July 1994, the Royal Commission on Aboriginal Peoples
held hearings to investigate the relocation program. They described it as:“one of the worst human-rights violations, in the history of Canada”.

Canadian High Arctic Research Station
Member of Parliament Dennis Bevington questions the Minister of Environment on the Canadian High Arctic Research Station in the House of Commons
October 27, 2014
Mr. Dennis Bevington MP Western Arctic:
Mr. Speaker, the latest omnibus budget bill combines the Polar Commission with the Canadian High Arctic Research Station, creating a new bureaucracy with a weaker reporting relationship with Parliament. Meanwhile there are numerous federal government Canadian Arctic science programs, such as the Polar continental shelf program at Natural Resources Canada, the Canadian Ice Service, and the NRC Arctic program.
Climate change is a crisis in the Arctic. Why has the Conservative government not created an organization that provides complete overall coordination of Arctic science, one that reports yearly to this Parliament?
Hon. Leona Aglukkaq (Minister of the Environment, Minister of the Canadian Northern Economic Development Agency and Minister for the Arctic Council):
Mr. Speaker, this amalgamation is an exciting opportunity to coordinate Arctic research. We have invested a significant amount of resources in creating Canada's High Arctic Research Station in Cambridge Bay. That project will be concluded by 2017, again bringing together researchers. The approach that we are taking is that research shall actually be conducted in the Arctic, and we are providing the avenues to do that.

Extinct Camel Discovery in High Arctic
New insight into camel evolution comes from an amazing discovery of bones from the leg of an extinct giant camel in Canada's High Arctic. Natalia Rybczynski, Ph.D., a palaeobiologist at the Canadian Museum of Nature, shows what her team found on Ellesmere Island, Nunavut. She explains the significance of the discovery and what it means to the study of biodiversity in the High Arctic about 3.5 million years ago.

About this video:
On this episode Yaro from Aviator Inspirations talks about a Day in the Life of an Arctic Pilot. The Canadian Arctic is a very unique place, but the Canadian high arctic is very cold. This type of extreme flying around the arctic pole by arctic pilots on Baffin island is a rare opportunity. Living in the arctic is not for everyone, but pond inlet and Iqaluit are beautiful places, although the arctic lifestyle is challenging.
Birds, Somerset Island and Thule Ruins in The Canadian High Arctic
In this last video of Sea Explorer Expedition Cruise, I crammed birds, zodiac cruise and Thule ruins on, I think, Somerset Island, that are approximately 4,000 years old. The Thule Culture arose in northwestern Alaska and over the next centuries spread east as far as northern Greenland.
Remains of a Thule settlement can be seen on Somerset Island as evidenced by whale bones, tunnels and stone ruins. Winters were spent in sometimes large communities of semi subterranean houses that were then covered with sealskin. Houses always faced towards the sea.
With no more Polar bears, passengers began packing up for disembarkation in Resolute, there to take a charter flight onwards to Toronto.
