Somerset Island : white ghosts country presentation

Sorry for the short notice! If anyone in the Ottawa area is wondering what to do tonight, Polar Horizons is doing its Somerset Island: white ghosts country presentation at the Carlingwood branch of the Ottawa Public Library.

Désolé pour le délai si court. Si certaines personnes de la région d’Ottawa ne savent trop quoi faire ce soir, Horizons Polaires présente “L’île Somerset : au pays des fantômes blancs” à la succursale Carlingwood de la bibliothèque publique d’Ottawa. La présentation sera en anglais.

Located above the 74th parallel North and facing the North-West Passage, Somerset Island is the 12th largest island in Canada. Every summer, hundreds if not thousands of belugas congregate in the Cunningham Inlet estuary to rub against the rocky bottom to molt their skin. Photographs and videos brought back from 2 stays on the island will enable you to witness this unique ritual. Also discover the flora, the landscapes and the logistics surrounding the operation of a lodge on this uninhabited island of the Canadian High Arctic.

Time : 6h30PM
Location : 281 Woodroffe, Ottawa, ON
