Snorkeling Trip to help Arctic: 3000 km ice water dive
A former Stratford High School student will be the only New Zealander in a 3000 kilometre snorkelling expedition in the Arctic Circle.
Environmental lawyer and scientist Emily Dowding-Smith, 31, was selected for a team of 10 women who will face freezing temperatures, predatory polar bears, walruses and narwhals to raise awareness of climate change.
Dowding-Smith leaves this Saturday for a “warm-up” run comprising three weeks’ snorkelling along north Canada’s Labrador coast to western Greenland.
