#MywildCanada twitterchat Sep 17 with Canadian Geographic Topic: Discoveries

canadian geographic logoOn this day, #mywildCanada was joined by very special guest co-host Canadian Geographic in honor of the exciting Franklin Expedition which discovered the 200 year old lost ship.  It was a great honor to be joined by Canadian Geographic and their CEO, Mr. John Geiger.

The name Canadian Geographic has been a part of Canadian life since I can remember – their world famous photographs, magazines and videos are adored by millions.

Recently Canadian Geographic has been in the news announcing the very exciting discovery of the Franklin Ship.  Their summer 2014 Franklin Expedition led them to the Arctic and the remains of the 200 year old sunken ship.

Imagine being able to chat directly with the people who were part of the discovery!  #mywildCanada appreciated the opportunity to learn from the experts.
