Feel the pulse of the Arctic as you hear about Tony Beck's experience at the floe edge, including his SPECTACULAR photos.
Tony recently travelled scouted a new tour at the boundaries of ice and open sea at the very top of Hudson Bay. Starting at the village of Naujaat (pronounced "Now-yaat") on the Arctic Circle (formerly called Repulse Bay), he made his way over the ice by snowmobile to the floe edge where he set up camp in a wonderful setting. Polar Bears coursed atop the ice’s edges nearby. Narwhal, Beluga, and Bowhead Whales, pushed their boundaries into the thawing sea, passing before him and stunning Arctic birds such as the gorgeous King Eider also pushed forth.
Tony is headed back to the floe edge with a small group tour June 5 - 12, 2020. If you particularly enjoy the prospect of discovering Canada’s remote regions, attend this webinar and consider joining us for this inaugural tour of discovery at ‘the edge’.

The Gull Frolic is a unique winter event hosted by the Illinois Ornithological Society at Illinois’ premier gull-watching hotspot: North Point Marina. Quest Nature Tours' Director, Justin Peter is their guest speaker!
In this talk illustrated with photographs from his three expeditions there, Justin will help us get acquainted with some of these birds. We’ll see what they look like, how they behave and interact with fellow Galapagos denizens, as well as gain insights into their origins through some of the latest research findings stemming from decades of research. The Galapagos Islands are often touted as a laboratory of evolution by natural selection, and some of the archipelago’s birds are among the best-studied organisms anywhere!
