Susan R. Eaton

A geoscientist, journalist and explorer, Susan R. Eaton studies the interplay of plate tectonics, oceans, glaciers, climate and life in polar regions.

A Fellow of the Royal Canadian Geographical Society, Susan explores the world’s oceans—from Antarctica to the Arctic—in the snorkel zone, a unique land-sea-ice-air interface where charismatic animals and snorkelers comingle.

In 2018, Ocean Geographic named Susan one of the “Ocean’s Best” 18 most influential women leaders in ocean conservation.

Twelve years ago, Susan suffered a scuba diving trauma that landed her in a hyperbaric chamber for three days, ending her 30-year diving career. Undaunted, her up-close-and-personal relationship with the ocean—which had included studying marine biology and teaching scuba diving—didn’t end in the hyperbaric chamber…

Redefining her relationship with the ocean, Susan has snorkeled with thousands of chatty belugas Hudson Bay and with docile manatees at Crystal River, Florida. She’s snorkeled in the Galapagos Archipelago where sea turtles, sea lions and nurse sharks outnumber snorkelers. In Haida Gwaii, she’s assisted the Haida Nation, snorkeling northern rivers to count salmon migrating to their ancestral spawning grounds. Susan has come face-to-mask with charging 1,400-pound leopard seals in the Southern Ocean—so close, in fact, that she could count the freckles on their upper palates and inspect their tri-serrated teeth which dispatch 30-pound penguins in mere minutes.

On Canada’s 150th birthday in 2017, Susan was honoured to be included in the book by Paulina Cameron, entitled “Canada 150 Women: Conversations with Leaders, Champions and Luminaries.”

In 2015, the Royal Canadian Geographical Society named Susan one of Canada’s top 100 modern-day explorers and trailblazers. A year later, the same organization named her one of Canada’s 25 greatest female explorers.

From November 25 (International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women) to December 10 (World Human Rights Day), the Sedna Epic Expedition's sea women observe the 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence. Let's come together to call out, speak up and renew our commitment to end gender-based violence.

This time last year, Sedna's sea women held an inaugural women's leadership program in Tromsø, Norway, prior to embarking on a one-week ocean research and winter snorkel expedition.

Team Sedna gathered at the Árdna Centre for Sámi Studies at UiT The Arctic University of Norway (University of Tromsø) for its inaugural Women in Leadership Program.

Through fireside conversations and workshops, we learned about Sámi traditions and cultures. Our Inuit team members and advisors from Nunavut shared their traditions and discussed challenges related to climate change and societal change in Canada's Arctic.

The name Árdna can be translated to "treasure" or "something valuable". Together with the Joho Niillas turf hut, Árdna is the centre of a Sámi cultural landscape on campus.

The use of Árdna was arranged through Professor Svein Jentoft, a colleague of Sedna’s team member Professor Emerita Bonnie McCay Merritt of Rutgers University. We'd like to thank the Center for Sámi Studies' professor Torjer Olsen and Else Grete Broderstad for inviting us to use this fabulous facility.

Team Sedna returns to Tromsø in November 2021, for its second women's leadership program and ocean research and snorkel expedition during the winter herring run in Norway's arctic fjords.

We're delighted to introduce the guest speakers for November 22, which is Day Two of our exciting virtual expedition to Norway's Arctic fjords. Due to COVID-19, our November 2020 expedition to the Norwegian Arctic is delayed by a year. But, that's not stopping Sedna's sea women from immersing themselves in Norway's winter herring run...

April Glaicar is a circumpolar photographer and mixed media artist who was born, raised and continues to live in Hay River, Northwest Territories, Canada. Her work has a strong connection to the circumpolar world and arctic conservation while embracing traditional knowledge and culture.

Always creative and attuned to nature as a child (often collecting a pocket full of rocks or flowers) she had begun exploring photography and design by the time she was in high school. Over the years she has continued to develop her photography skills and learn techniques in other mediums as a way to express her experiences.

It is her passion for photography combined with a love of nature, people and creative curiosity that have resulted in April’s “Inspired Surroundings” jewellery collection; an eclectic mix of her original photographs, fine silver and fused glass techniques (originating over 4000 years ago), other treasures including vintage up-cycled beads, semi-precious stones, local fossils and whitefish vertebrae. April works full time in her home based April Glaicar Studios to create storytelling pieces of fine art jewellery and décor.

Largely a self-taught artist, April experiments with different materials and techniques and eagerly participates in opportunities to learn from other artists in any discipline. She shares art and encourages creativity by teaching workshops locally and at festivals.

April’s work has been featured and sold at the ART Market in Calgary, Far North Film Festival in Yellowknife and the Great Northern Arts Festival in Inuvik where she was awarded the “Viewers’ Choice” award for Jewellery and Metalwork in 2017.

With great pride April was selected to design and create the Cultural Medallions given to the 60 circumpolar cultural performers of the Arctic Winter Games 2018.

April’s first exhibition “Our True North” a visual time capsule of life in Sachs Harbour and Ulukhaktok, NWT in 2017 launched in April 2019 and is available for exhibit.

Her designs may be purchased directly on-line and at select locations & events as listed on her website. Commission inquiries are welcomed.
