A life in the ice

SOUTHWEST HARBOR — Sean Todd will talk about his travels and experiences in the northern and southern polar regions of the globe on Tuesday, May 21 at 5:30 p.m. at Southwest Harbor Public Library, in a presentation entitled “A Life in the Ice”.

Todd, the Steven K. Katona Chair in Marine Sciences at College of the Atlantic, will feature his work and research on the Antarctic Peninsula as well as his recent trip through the Northwest Passage and work in Newfoundland and sub-polar Labrador.

“Todd has been traveling to these extreme regions for almost 20 years and has accrued a deep understanding of the ecology of their environments, especially in regard to the role of ecotourism in developing these sites as wildlife sanctuaries — particularly salient given the increasing impact of climate change,” said event organizers

Todd recently authored and starred in “Life in the Worlds’ Oceans”, a 30-part video course exploring everything from deadly microorganisms to massive marine mammals, produced by The Great Courses in partnership with Smithsonian.
