Troy Glover: Ad-Hoc Trailblazer

trayban_TroyRouteplanning

Troy Glover is a 24 year old adventurer, educator, art & science teacher, photographer, and kayaker. He has a passion for remote communities and settings and for learning what it takes to be in these places. He has travelled extensively throughout Canada’s north by foot, canoe, kayak, cycle, and by car. He spends his every day promoting equality within
First Nations and Northern communities. This includes equality in education, equality between different cultures, and equality in basic human rights. He does this through his commitment to education with the Cree School Board whom he works for, through his various passions for adventure, a strong interests in photography and the arts, as well
as his strong interest in First Nations culture and people.

His ultimate goal is to one day become a full-time sea kayaking guide on citizen science trips and expeditions and he is currently training as much as possible: studying for the sea
kayaking guide course and planning a major expedition to become one of the first paddlers to kayak the entire shoreline of both James and Hudson Bay along with his partner Alison Smith. Along the way, they plan on highlighting the exceptional beauty of this vast arctic marine region, the unique way of life of those who have called it home for millennia, and the urgent need to protect it from encroaching development.

The idea stemmed from their recent successful completion of their Wemindji-Chisasibi Expedition becoming the first kayakers to travel from Wemindji, QC to Chisasibi, QC along the remote James Bay coastline. The goal of the trip was to feature the recently proposed Tawich Marine Protected Area and the need to urgently pass it into protected status.
