Explorer Classroom | Isai Madriz: Live in Patagonia (Chile)

Isai has one of our textbook-sized satellite BGAN units and will be broadcasting live from one of the most remote and pristine regions on the planet, from the Patagonian region of Chile! This is an unexplored land of glaciers, wild rivers and potential new species.
Isaí Madriz is an entomologist and zoologist with expertise in freshwater aquatic insects of Patagonia. As a Fulbright-National Geographic Digital Storytelling Fellow, he is telling the story of deglaciation of the Northern Patagonia Ice Field, focusing on its vanishing aquatic insect diversity through images and stories of exploration, science, and human connections. He combines hiking, bike packing, and pack rafting to transect unexplored areas and secluded fjords in search of some of the rarest insects on the planet. This low-carbon-footprint approach uses renewable energy sources to capture never-before-seen footage of remote glacial outlets and hidden valleys of wild Patagonia.
