The Arctic & Bringing Science to Non-scientists (Geoff York)

Video Shot in: 2009

Geoff York, a conservationist with WWF, shares his passion for the Arctic during a recent conversation. As he glances at the map behind him, he expresses how it resonates with his worldview. Although he doesn’t live in the Arctic now, having formerly spent three years in Fairbanks, he feels a deep personal connection to the region. His drive to work towards its conservation stems from an unexplainable pull he feels towards the high north. In his new role at WWF, he coordinates their work throughout the circumpolar region, which has allowed him to broaden his understanding of the Arctic and its diverse peoples. Geoff’s upcoming travels to places like Svalbard and Wrangel Island will offer him a chance to gain insights into the different Arctic communities.
