Research Examines Safe Ice Travel

Nunatsiavut is a busy place for research this summer.

One researcher is in Nain examining health and safety during travel on sea ice.

Agata Durkalec is a student from Trent University.

She says she was in Nain last April to set up ice monitoring stations with Sikumiut Environmental Management.

Durkalec is now working on behalf of the Nunatsiavut Government.

She will be speaking with various residents in Nain to get an idea of how they use the ice and how it affects their health.
