BSES HQ receives expedition field updates weekly so check back every Monday to see what has happened in the week gone by.

Firing Range

As a precaution and last resort defence against Polar bears, the expedition will carry rifles throughout their time in Svalbard. To allow them to carry these and use them safely, they are fully briefed and practiced on the weapons in Longyearbyen before heading out. Here Joe shows us what he's learned....

This video was filmed on the 4th April just before the expedition left Longearbyen - we will keep dropping in videos and photos to the blog as and when we get them back from the field.
