OUR CAMP MASCOTS

During our four decades of remote Northern operations, we have had the privilege to work with - and be owned by - several wonderful camp mascots, whose jobs ranged from grizzly 'alarms', and to the delight of the photographers - to 'wooing' wild wolves into camp in order to check out & play with thier new 'kin buddies'!

Jake has left us for a better & higher piece of tundra

1995-2008

On October 13, 2008, at age 14, our camp mascot Jake wandered away down a wet bush road in NW Ontario in the middle of the night, and left this corrupt world for a better & higher piece of tundra.

Jake led quite the life indeed - having flown, hiked & paddled across much of the mainland Arctic - to running free wherever we went. As a half-wolf himself, he often lured other lone tundra wolves and occassionally wolf pups right down into the wildlife camp yard, to the delight of our photographer guests!

He once ran like the wind.....

 


The camp mascot team of Girly & Tango joined us on the field for duty in 2010
.
Unfortunately Tango was killed and eaten by a tundra wolf that summer... Girly is still with us now.
