Vital signs, fun facts, and background on the human team in the field - Paul & Mille
"The more we understand about the country we are traveling in, the easier the expedition becomes," says Mille, when asked why she is constantly seen sifting through pages on the Canadian Arctic (one of her favorite areas in the world).

If you would like to know more about the Arctic and where the polar huskies are taking us this year -- Take a look at our facts page. 

On April 1, 1999, the new Canadian territory of Nunavut (nu-nah-voot) was created on 772, 000 square miles of land traditionally occupied by the Inuit.

Because most of the residents of Nunavut are Inuit, the government will use Inuit language (inuktitut), traditions, and values when deciding most issues. This new territory was formed from more than half of the Northwest Territories. It extends north from the northern borders of Ontario and Alberta and east to the Atlantic Ocean. Despite having only 28 (yes, twenty-eight) towns and some 28,000 people, Nunavut is larger than the combined areas of Alaska and California !!!
