A doctor by training and a renowned explorer, Jean-Louis Etienne was the first man to reach the North Pole solo in 1986 and to make the first complete crossing of Antarctica in 1989-90. A tireless defender of the planet, his many educational and scientific expeditions aim to raise awareness of the polar regions and understand the role they play in life and the Earth’s climate. Following his love of great adventures, Polar POD is his next expedition, an unprecedented exploration of the Southern Ocean.
