This is the first installment of SOI’s 2016 Arctic Expedition Vlog Series and we are excited to introduced one of SOI’s longest participating educators and one of the founding members of Students on Ice, James Raffan.

James RaffanJames Raffan, also known as JR, has been an instrumental part of the Students on Ice (SOI) education program since its beginning in 2000. He is an author, geographer and polar historian with a long history in experiential learning and connecting youth to nature that has benefitted SOI students and educators alike for years.

We asked JR to share a bit about himself and he is looking forward to on SOI’s upcoming 2016 Arctic Expedition.
