Thursday April 13, 2017 - Today I head out to Toolik Field Station to work with a research team trying to understand the specific details behind hibernation in the Arctic ground squirrel. After three years of applying, this year I was accepted as a PolarTREC teacher to get current real-world research experience in the polar regions. My site is in the north of Alaska. I will be keeping a journal on their website, and since we will be limited with internet and time, I hope you can follow along on their site rather than here this time.
Follow along with my adventure at https://www.polartrec.com/expeditions/arctic-ground-squirrel-studies-2017, where you can also sign up to receive emails when I release an update.
I will also do two live presentations to talk about the research and show off a squirrel. Please register and watch if you can! Register at https://www.polartrec.com/polar-connect/register
Tuesday April 25 10:15pm Alaska time/2:15 am EST/8:15am Swiss time
Thursday April 27 7am Alaska time/11am EST/5pm Swiss time.
Thanks, and hope you enjoy!
