Read about Adam Shoalts' latest expedition at Canadian Geographic.
Adam Shoalts is a Canadian explorer, naturalist, and woodsman. He compliments these activities with work as a writer, author, and historian. On his expeditions, he explores remote areas of the Canadian wilderness that no known expeditions have previously explored, and that have never been mapped from on the ground. These are highly remote wilderness areas where many of the landmarks remain unnamed. He has made the first exploration in recorded history of three different rivers in the Hudson Bay watershed. The Royal Canadian Geographical Society sponsored Shoalts' expeditions to the Hudson Bay Lowlands in 2011 and 2013, while in 2012 he blogged about his expedition there for Canadian Geographic.
When not on major expeditions, Shoalts frequently undertakes smaller adventures, and is a regular newspaper columnist, award-winning environmentalist, author, and historian working towards his Ph.D, specializing in explorers. He is currently focused on researching the history of North American exploration and writing for Canadian Geographic.
Other exploring work Shoalts undertakes includes searching for rare species of flora and fauna, and doing "history with his boots on."
