Episode 6 Polar Exploration, Climate Change & the Power of Photography with Sebastian Copeland
Sebastian Copeland has been photographing his expeditions to the Arctic, Antarctica and Greenland for more than 20 years. This week on Passport To Everywhere, the polar explorer and photographer transports us to the poles and gives us a sneak peek of his upcoming book Polar Explorations: To the Ends of the Earth. Sebastian and Melissa discuss how he combines his love of photography, lust for adventure and commitment to scientific data to document global environmental trends and showcase the beauty of endangered ecosystems. Through his expeditions, he hopes to inspire large-scale action around climate change. Sebastian also reflects on how traveling to such extreme, remote climates and native communities has transformed his perspective on society and nature. Plus, ahead of Melissa’s first trip to Antarctica on our brand new Insider Journey Antarctica Awaits, Sebastian shares how a traveler should prepare for an adventure in the polar regions.
