Sagax Greenland 2007

The Expedition

 

Using science and education, the Expedition’s goal is to create awareness about global warming with an emphasis on the melting of Greenland's glaciers and pack ice in particular

Our local goals

In July 2007, Sagax scientific and environmental eco-science team will measure global warming impact on wildlife in the Arctic region of Greenland: Ivory Gull, polar bear, bowhead whale, lichen, etc…

We will also try to reach the Top of Greenland (Highest peak in the Arctic), a symbol of Greenland’s shrinking ice-cap, while collecting lichen samples and censusing ivory gulls colonies in the peak’s region.

Reach the Top of the World: the Northernmost point of land on earth (this area, rich in flora and fauna which will be analyzed and measured, is particularly sensitive to global warming)

Highlights of the expedition

Top of Greenland: Hvitserk (Gunnbjørnsfjeld):
3693m/12,168’

Camp Icefield (100km north of Gunnbjørnsfjeld): Our
team will locate, count and survey ivory gull colonies,
a barometer of local climate changes

Kap Morris Jesup/Oodaaq Qeqertaa:    

          Northernmost point of land in the world.
Our team will try to reach the Northernmost dry point on Earth.
In that effort, we will be helped by Ben, an expert in
paramotoring.

Greenland - Northeast islands: Our team will survey the
local polar bear, bowhead whale, walrus and ivory gull
population and their recent evolution.
