Nature’s Treasure on the shore of the Beaufort Sea

The wonders of walking the shore of the Arctic ocean take many forms. With feisty Arctic Terns circling above, seals gliding amongst the sea ice and caribou moving through the mist on the mainland; on Nunaluk Spit, the terminus of our Firth River Expeditions, there is a lot to take in! 

Between swiveling your head the beach at our feet is also worth focusing on! Recently we have found a mammoth tusk, an ice age horse skull and ancient dog sleigh runners. But in 2022 renowned Naturalist Brian Keeting came upon the exoskeleton of a rare isopod and shared his find with the CBC’s Homestretch.
