The arctic fox raises large litters, with an average 11 pups, in dens that can have as many as 100 entrances. In contrast, my modest house has 3 doors and I often have to text my teenage daughter to find her at dinnertime. How does the Arctic Fox manage to find its little ones in these dens of many doors?
As the trip’s media coordinator, I have the delight and honour of getting almost daily updates from Know the North. Even 120 characters can paint quite the picture. Here are a few highlights (edited for coherence, grammar, and spelling) from the past two weeks that the trip has been out on the water. Lots of challenges already, and many more to come. But endless rewards.
