Arctic Clean Up Expedition available for all:

Since 2005 Cruise North has been recruiting volunteers for week-long missions to clean up a heavily polluted abandoned mining site in Canada’s Arctic. The goal was to bring the site back to its pristine Arctic conditions for nearby residents and inhabitants to enjoy. This would mean taking four separate trips since 2005 to haul countless loads of waste from the area to send south for proper disposal.

We reached our goal in 2009, when the Cruise North team and many dedicated volunteers removed the remaining debris from the site. During the five-year mission we hauled out hundreds of rusted fuel drums, dozens of propane tanks and truck batteries, and piles upon piles of scrap metal.

In 2010 we began our next mission, and are keeping up the good work in 2011. We are cleaning up old waste sites in and around Canada’s newest national park, Torngat Mountains National Park in Northern Labrador. While the focus is on environmental preservation, the project includes informative presentations and discussion of stewardship issues such as park management, research and exploration, student learning, and tourism. There are also plenty of opportunities to go ashore with Inuit and experience the Torngat Mountains through a cultural lens.
Voluntourism and travellers from around the world have urged us to make this expedition available to all, and we listened! Now anyone can book the Clean Up Expedition which will be from September 14-22, 2011. For more details visit:
