Dylan Clark and the CCAdapt team have received a National Geographic Young Explorer Grant! The grant will fund a project to examine how Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) in combination with traditional land knowledge may improve search and rescue capacity and hazard identification in Arctic communities. The research is also being funded by a Canadian Institutes of Health Research Community-Based Primary Health Care team grant. Dylan Clark finished his MSc with the lab in September with a focus on search and rescue and injury in Nunavut. He is now working on various projects with the group. This is Dylan’s second Young Explorer grant, and the teams 4th National Geographic grant awarded.
