Svalbard & Beyond

David Larson traveled around Svalbard aboard a small ship in the summer of 2016. He recorded 16 polar bears, millions of dovekies, hundreds of thousands of thick-billed murres, arctic terns, all three jaegers, great skuas, glaucous and ivory gulls, and much more at sea. On land, there were views of reindeer, arctic fox, and a few passerines. Come along on a virtual tour of this journey at the edges of civilization and beyond.

Yellowstone

Broadmoor Sanctuary Director Elissa Landre will take us on a virtual tour to the world’s first national park—Yellowstone. As an active supervolcano, this park features colorful boiling hot springs, erupting geysers, the grand canyon of the Yellowstone River, and iconic wildlife. Managed to preserve natural systems, wolves have been successfully re-introduced, bison roam freely, elk are abundant, grizzly bears maintain a healthy population, and birds including Great Grey Owl, Williamson’s Sapsucker, and White Pelican can be seen.
