Pascale has been exploring the Polar Regions since 2000. After working as a field Biologist studying birds in the Arctic and Antarctica, she wintered aboard a Canadian yacht on the Antarctic Peninsula. Pascale’s main focus on that mission was to draw attention to the impacts of climate change and share this adventure through the media with audiences around the world. This was only one of many expeditions she would take part in. Pascale is a passionate educator, storyteller and videographer. She has been involved in all aspects of expedition life, from yacht crewing and logistics, to media communication and film production at both ends of the earth… and occasionally the warm places in between! Pascale joined NIWA-Wellington in 2020, after moving from a remote Inuit community in the Canadian Arctic.
