Carole Gobeil

RWRANGEL AND HERALD ISLANDS, SIBERIA: THE ARCTIC’S BEST-KEPT WILDLIFE SECRET

     In 2016 Carole Gobeil managed to penetrate what was once known as the Ice Curtain and cross Bering Strait to the Wrangel and Herald islands in the Chukchi Sea, northeastern Siberia. These islands lie in an area of pristine wilderness unusually rich in wildlife and previously not easily accessible to foreigners. Carole looks forward to a return visit with a small group of travellers in 2019.
     Carole Gobeil hails from the French River region of Northern Ontario, where she developed a love of the wilderness and its exploration at an early age. Carole has worked in the travel and tourism industry since 1974. In 2005 she made her first trip to the Arctic. Mesmerized by five nights of Northern Lights in Hudson Bay, she became hooked. Since then Carole has visited both the northern and southern polar regions numerous times.
     Please note this meeting will be held in the Control Tower on the top floor of the RCAF Officers Mess, 158 Gloucester Street (just east of Bank Street), Ottawa. Parking is available on the street and in nearby parking lots. There is a charge of $4.00 for evening use of the parking lot in the same block as the Mess. The meeting begins at 2000 hrs and the bar will be available from 1930 hrs. As always, guests are welcome.
