For its major crossing of Canada in 2021, the AKOR team is committed to contributing to the advancement of knowledge of northern ecosystems, building on what distinguishes it from conventional research: its ability to travel long distances in an integral manner and at a pace that allows it to stop temporarily anywhere to sample.

In addition, since relatively few sampling expeditions have been carried out in these remote ecosystems, it is possible that the AKOR team may collect species that are still unknown to modern science.

We hope that our project will lead to a better understanding of our country’s fascinating wildlife and better protection from human disturbance.
