Fraser Carpenter

May 1, 2015

Fraser has spent much of her adult life at sea. Her career on the water was launched in the early 1980’s with a number of off shore yacht deliveries leading to a position working as a naturalist /crew on board a sailing yacht operating between Cape Cod and the South East Bahamas. 
 
Discovering a great love of all things and places wild, she eventually, along with her partner, built a steel yacht in the front yard in Newfoundland and spent 14 years sailing around the world. Voyaging into the high latitudes of Svalbard, Greenland, Labrador, Iceland, Cape Horn and South Georgia she developed further her interests in nature and nature photography. Sailing to remote places brought her a variety of rewards, including the opportunity to join research projects in remote areas with a variety of subjects from rats to reindeer.
