The Canadian Wildlife Federation has partnered with Adam’s OAR Northwest Adventure Team for their upcoming expeditions, April’s Salish Sea circumnavigation of Vancouver Island and December’s Africa to the Americas trans Atlantic crossing in the ‘world’s most technologically advanced rowing boat’.
During the 2012 expeditions, the OAR Northwest Team will gather data from the ocean environment, marine life and themselves for researchers across North America. Through free web-based tracking and an adventure learning curriculum found at OARnorthwest.com, students and adults alike will virtually join the rowers every oar stroke of the way. Students enrolled in the fee-based program for schools in Washington and British Columbia will meet expedition team members, learn marine and maritime studies and practice analyzing sleep study data.
