Event Details

 

Antarctica and Galapagos through the Eyes of National Geographic Explorers

 

SIX STAR TRAVEL in partnership with SILVERSEA EXPEDITIONS is thrilled that National Geographic Explorers, George Kourounis and Joe Grabowski will present their experiences in their favorite destinations, Antarctica and The Galapagos Islands.

 

Introducing - Our Amazing Presenters 

 

 

George Kourounis, Host of Angry Planet, also known as The Stormchaser

 

George Kourounis is an award-winning explorer who specializes in documenting extreme forces of nature worldwide: volcanoes, hurricanes, tornadoes, wildfires, and other extreme weather events as well as the effects of global climate change. His efforts to document nature's most extreme conditions have taken him to 65 countries, into places most people are fleeing. Whether it's a tornado outbreak in Kansas, a monster hurricane in the Gulf of Mexico, forest fires in Australia, rising sea levels in Tuvalu, melting permafrost in Siberia, the frigid extremes of Antarctica, or descending deep inside an active volcano in the Congo, he is in the middle of the action—with his camera in hand.

 

His expeditions have been seen around the world, featured on a variety of different television programs, including 49 episodes of the "Angry Planet" series, while leading a scientific expedition for National Geographic searching for microbial life forms in extreme places, Kourounis became the first person to ever set foot at the bottom of the Darvaza flaming gas crater, a fiery pit that has been burning for over 45 years in the Turkmenistan desert.

 


 

 

Guelph's own, Joe Grabowski, Founder of Exploring by the Seat of Your Pants

 

Joe Grabowski is an educator and scuba diver working to bring science, exploration, adventure, and conservation into classrooms across North America and beyond through virtual speakers and field trips. He is the founder of the nonprofit Exploring by the Seat of Your Pants, which, since 2015, has hosted more than 1,000 video conferences with leading scientists and explorers from over 50 countries, connecting them with hundreds of thousands of students. Grabowski is using technology to open the most remote corners of the planet to classrooms, sending textbook-sized satellite-based Broadband Global Area Network (BGAN) units into the field with explorers so they can broadcast into classrooms from pretty much anywhere on the planet. In 2017, he was selected as a National Geographic Emerging Explorer, before becoming a 2018 National Geographic Education Fellow. Grabowski is a Top 50 Finalist for the Global Teacher Prize, a 2016 Grosvenor Teacher Fellow, an Ocean Exploration Trust Fellow, a Fellow of the Royal Canadian Geographical Society, and an Explorers Club Fellow.
