Arctic Ocean's Southern Edge

In August 2014, my grandfather, my dad, my sons and I will journey north across Ontario until the roads end, and then by train until the rails end in Moosonee. We'll fly across James Bay, in search of Polar Bears and Beluga Whales wandering south from Arctic Ocean. This is in part inspired by Frozen Planet from the BBC.
