On the 17th of January the first Polar Talk of the Austrian Polar Research Institute took place in the Museum of Natural History, Vienna. Dr. Gertrude Saxinger spoke about the First Nations in Canada’s Yukon Territory and their relationship to the mining industry. Over 40 people found their way to the museum for the evening and contributed to a lively discussion after the talk. Afterwards, drinks and snacks were enjoyed in the entrance hall of the beautiful museum. APRI wishes to thank all visitors and the museum for a pleasant evening!
