Photo by @PaulNicklen | The National Geographic Endeavour pounds through heavy seas en route to Antarctica, and the ocean pounds right back. The roughest seas in the world stretch 600 miles between South America and Antarctica. Our team has since crossed this body of water several times on a 50 foot sailboat, every journey as unforgettable as the one that came before it. The memories linger with me always: vomiting for days on end; the smell of diesel fuel as it spills out of the tank and into the boat; being thrown out of bed into a wall and cutting my leg open on a spare boat motor that was hanging in my room. I have nothing but respect for the captains and crews who have navigated these waters since the days of Shackleton.

Meet Shailene Woodley (@shailenewoodley), an actor and activist who recently spent a week on the Sargasso Sea learning about the effects of microplastics on our oceans.⁣⁣

“The thing that struck me the most is how each one of our decisions, no matter where we live in this world, affects every other human being and every other creature on this planet. Being thousands of miles away from any continent, and seeing the effects of human recklessness and ignorance inflicted upon the ocean was mesmerizing to me,” she says. “It took my breath away with how truly connected we all are and how easy it is to lose sight of that. We can all find a little more space for kindness and generosity with one another, because the minute we hold space for that, the minute we are able to care more about things like our oceans and seas.”⁣

In honor of #WorldWaterWeek, learn more about Shailene’s advocacy work, the ocean and the ways you can help make a difference in this week’s episode of #Advocates, on our Stories and IGTV. 🌈🌊⁣

Newfoundland and Labrador Week, Day 2!

Yesterday I featured images from the Easternmost point of the province, Cape Spear. Today I’m going all the way up to the northernmost point of the province to Torngat Mountains National Park, which is located at the top of Labrador.

You might not have heard of Torngat Mountains before. It is one of the least visited parks in Canada because of how difficult it is to get to. You can’t drive there. You can’t just pull up in an RV as part of a road trip.

To get there, you first have to get to Happy Valley-Goose Bay. From there, you take a flight which stops in the northern community of Rain, and then lands at the abandon radar station at Sajlek Fjord. From there you take a boat to the Torngats Base Camp. ⠀
The park is jointly administered with the local Inuit community in Labrador and Parks Canada. The park gets about 800 visitors per year. Most of those are people sailing through as they go north, or local school groups from Labrador.

One of the constant things you have to be on the lookout for is polar bears. Wherever you go in the park, you have to have a bear guard with you. ⠀
One of my more memorable days in the park was taking a boat trip to the end of Sajlek Fjord where we had lunch. Lunch consisted of giving us some fishing poles and we had to catch our own lunch. FYI fresh Arctic char is amazing!

Most people are totally unaware that there are fjords in North America, but there are and they are spectacular.
