Adam Shoalts

Adam Shoalts, called “Canada’s Indiana Jones” by the Toronto Star, has proven that the age of exploration is far from over. His expeditions into Canada’s wilderness have generated new geographic knowledge and garnered international headlines. Focusing on the vast Hudson Bay Lowlands (the closest thing left to a blank spot on the global map), this area, larger than the United Kingdom, is virtually unexplored to this day. Shoalts has, literally, changed the map of Canada. He is currently completing a Ph.D. at McMaster University.
