Using footage from the past eight years and from adventures on five continents, polar explorer Eric Larsen created a mash-up video to inspire people on Earth Day. One of Larsen’s biggest sources of inspiration is Robert Service’s “Call of the Wild” poem, a reading of which narrates his video.

Larsen wrote in an email that, “the love and concern for our environment is something I have always known. Growing up in Wisconsin, I was outside as much as possible—camping fishing, riding my bike. But back then, my mind didn’t stretch much farther than my own backyard. For that, I credit writers like Farley Mowat, Sigurd Olsen, Barry Lopez and many others who were able to describe places of which I barely knew existed.”

Happy Earth Day.
