What's on Deck!

Watch this space to see what’s on deck for the next release of The Bridge on June 8th.

Alumni Making Waves

SOI Arctic 2015 alum Shadunjen van Kampen recently made the news as quite possibly the first Yukon First Nations woman to receive her commercial pilot licence. Not only is she a role model for young women, but flying helps her stay connected to the land and support environmental studies such as tracking caribou, counting moose and surveying salmon habitats. Way to go Shadunjen!

SOI Staff Pick: Angry Inuk

At SOI, we draw inspiration and new ways of thinking from many resources! Our current Staff Pick is Angry Inuk. This film is available through CBC Docs and described as “Exploring how Inuit hunters in tiny remote communities in the High Arctic are negatively affected by animal rights groups protesting against the Canadian east coast seal hunt that happens a thousand kilometers away.” Watch Here.

Did you know?

Here in Canada, we are enjoying spring and the return of so many birds to our communities. Did you know that the Arctic Tern has the longest migration of any bird, travelling nearly 60,000km between the Arctic and Antarctic every year? That is the same distance as circling the world twice!
