The latest issue of the new GEO magazine "Geo Aventure", tells the story of the French freediver champion Aurore Asso, during our expedition to the Russian Arctic in 2017. The Pax Arctica New Siberian Islands was an eco-scientific expedition in the Russian Arctic, in the footsteps of George De Long, polar explorer of the late nineteenth century.

The film will be shown on ARTE this summer. Dates/times TBA.

En 1881, l’explorateur américain George W. De Long découvrit cinq îles en mer de Sibérie orientale, avant de mourir de froid. Un siècle et demi plus tard, une expédition est partie sur ses traces avec, à son bord, Aurore Asso, championne d’apnée.

Le 14 septembre 2017, l’équipe de Pax Arctica embarquait sur le Mikhail Somov, un brise-glace ravitaillant les stations météorologiques de l’Arctique russe. […]

The French famous daily newspaper has published an article about the french version of “In The Kingdom of Ice” – by Hampton Sides. This French version published by Paulsen.

C’était une expedition Arctique comme la fin du XIXe siècle les affectionnait: à visée scientifique et patriotique, née de fantasmes géographique et du plus noble esprit d’aventure.


La Principauté | Octobre 2018

L’histoire paraît folle. Elle a pourtant bien eu lieu : un génial entrepreneur de presse, un explorateur qui n'a pas dit son dernier mot. Et l'Amérique tout entière, qui s'enflamme pour l'aventure. Il est vrai qu'il en va du sort de l'humanité : qu'y a-t-il au Pôle Nord ?

Column: Looking back at 2016 — looking forward at 2017

January 7, 2017 | Greenwich Sentinel

By Anne W. Semmes | Sentinel Columnist

If there is any portent that 2017 will be full of surprises it’s that on New Year’s Day I found myself in my birth town of Memphis, Tennessee sitting atop a 321-foot glass pyramid overlooking not the Nile but a foggy Mississippi River eating catfish while gazing at a giant catfish floating about in a tower of water, while celebrating the 90th birthday of a sister who’s broken the glass ceiling of a family of short lived people.

GREENWICH - Cos Cob resident Luc Hardy, 52, and his daughter, Ainhoa, 14, could hardly believe what they were witnessing when they stumbled across a gaping, seawater-filled fissure in the snowy terrain of the Canadian Arctic last month. The two had spent the afternoon of July 22 on an educational group-hiking expedition across the "Ward Hunt" ice shelf in northern Canada when they saw a crack in the ice and a huge chunk drifting away from the main shelf.

Young Arctic Ambassadors meet Gorbachev to express concerns about Climate Change

November 21st, 2008 | Moscow

Moscow – On Friday 21st November, Green Cross International Founding President Mikhail Gorbachev did pay tribute to an international coalition of children, who have been particularly active in alerting the public about critical environmental issues endangering the Arctic. Aïnhoa Hardy, Flaam Hardy and Beth Idlout (who came all the way from Nunavut, Canada) presented the results of the expedition to President Gorbachev at the Gorbachev Foundation in Moscow. The young adventurers each received a “Young Ambassador” award from Mr. Gorbachev’s directly, recognizing their contribution to the fight against climate change. Not present at the ceremony but equally involved were other members of the Pax Arctica expedition 2008: Kuria Mwaura, Mark Tosi, Olympia Nagel-Caland, and the Zangrillo sisters, Amber, Ashley and Alexa.

Here is a photo and video summary of the event: © Sagax / Pax Arctica


NASA Earth Observatory - September 5th 2008.

In 1907, Arctic explorer Robert Peary traveled along the northern coast of Canada’s Ellesmere Island on a dog sled and described a “glacial fringe” along the island’s northern coast. Modern glaciologists have deduced that this ice fringe formed roughly 4,500 years ago and, in Peary’s time, was likely a continuous ice shelf covering some 8,900 square kilometers (almost 3,500 square miles).

SAGAX EXPEDITIONS, en association avec Green Cross International et Global Green USA, pilote le projet Pax Arctica prévu sur 3 ans, de l'été 2008 à l'été 2010.
