Exeter student sets her sights on a ground-breaking expedition
An Exeter student is hoping to be part of a ground-breaking expedition to Baffin Island, in the Arctic Ocean of Northern Canada. Louise Biddle (2008, Earth Sciences) will be part of a team of just three who hope to head to the island this August to film the Inuit people and the effects of climate change on their communities, in order to educate UK school children.
In addition to this, very little geological observation has been done in the area, so any observations Louise is able to make while she is there could potentially be significant.
In order to undertake the project, Louise needs to raise £3,000 to cover her flights, accommodation and other costs. Any Old Members who would be interested in helping her with these costs, should email her.
