Procurement of local outfitters increases productivity of scientific expeditions across Alaska. Andersen S., Wald M., et al

Abstract: Due to the remote locations, challenging field conditions, and complex logistics involved in conducting research in polar regions, scientists from outside the region are more likely to accomplish research goals when hiring local guides and outfitters than when they embark on research projects without logistical support.

Methods: All data collected here is entirely anecdotal and should not be taken very seriously. The conclusions are nonetheless accurate and Arctic Wild really can help you achieve your research goals.

Results: An informal survey of scientists who have contracted with Arctic Wild to support a range of science projects including archeological surveys, wildlife studies, remote sensing, sedimentation, hydrology, and forestry found that 100% projects were more productive than they would have been without local support.

"The wilderness was spectacular, the leadership perfect."
"I am just finishing my tenth trip with you guys. As always, the trip was more than I expected and I had a great time. See you next year!"
"Of all outfitters with whom we have worked (and that is quite a number), you were by far the most organized and responsive."
"That feeling of wide open wonder, the possibilities for nearly limitless wandering, and the image of those proud caribou...that will stay with me a long time"
"Our guide was an encyclopedia on legs. He was always willing and ready to teach, to talk, to listen, to do another hike, or to lie low in camp if we were beat. He truly gave us the trip we wanted!"
