Nunavut is the newest Canadian province, having been carved out of the Northwest Territories in 1999.  It is a vast Arctic land, lightly occupied and bearing greater resemblance to Greenland or Antarctica than it does to other Canadian provinces.  Award winning aerial videographer Florian Ledeaux shot this stunning video of a polar bear walking across the icebergs floating in the Arctic Sea.  The video powerfully illustrates the fragility of the world's eco-system to continued global warmimg trends.

Check out these amazing aerial views of the Canadian island of Newfoundland, compliments of contributor newfound drone.  One of the largest islands in the Western Hemisphere by land area, Newfoundland covers almost 109k square km (about 42k square mi.), roughly the same size as the USA state of Tennessee.  Part of the province of Newfoundland and Labrador, it's separated from the Canadian mainland by the Strait of Belle Isle.  Newfoundland didn't join Canada until 1949, and it remains one of the country's most culturally distinct regions.

The Yukon is the northwesternmost of Canada's 13 provinces, and one of the three so-called Federal Territories which run across the northern tier of the country (the others being Northwest Territories and Nunavut).  It has a very long western border with the USA state of Alaska, and its northern border is on the Arctic Ocean.  Contributor Bbloss was working on filming a TV show in the area, and used a DJI Mavic Pro drone to create this brief but fascinating look at this remote corner of the country.

Drone on IceBreaker

The title says it all.  Top drone pilot and aerial videographer David Etienne Durivage (profile name "Dizifilms") created this spectacular aerial video of a cargo carrying ship operating in the Canadian Arctic.  The video shows the containership plowing through the thick ice of the foreboding Arctic Ocean, and the bird's eye perspective of this scene is incredible.  A ship like this is capable of breaking through modest ice coverings; much thicker ice would require a dedicated icebreaker to clear a path.

New AirVuz contributor newfound drone brings us this fantastic aerial video from the Canadian island of Newfoundland, which is part of the province of Newfoundland and Labrador.  The video begins with footage from the Newfoundland Boreal Forest, which covers much of the island and is part of the Taiga.  Then you'll fly over the Humber River, which rises in the Newfoundland Highlands and flows westward to the Bay of Islands.  The last stop is a rock formation known as the Man in the Mountains; it's located near the town of Cornerbrook.

Among the most unusual looking whale species are Narwals.  Found in the world's far northern reaches, they are very much distinguished by a large "tusk" which is a residual tooth.  Award winning contributor and drone pilot Florian Ledoux was part of a team searching for these elusive creatures in Nanuvut, in the far Arctic reaches of Northern Canada.  After a few days, they located some of these elusive creatures and were able to film them with a drone, resulting in this astounding video.

Check out this magnificent drone video from Canada's far north, compliments of award-winning contributor and drone pilot Florian Ledoux.  He was able to aerially film a giant group of Beluga whales as they ply the waters of the river estuaries in Nunavut Province.  Canada's newest province (it was carved out of the Northwest Territories in 1999), Nunavut is a vast land which extends many hundreds of km/mi into the Arctic Circle.  It is home to numerous species which are potentially endangered from global warming.

"The Rock": Newfoundland, Canada

gtingle...

At the easternmost end of Canada is its Newfoundland province.  The province is comprised of two areas: the island of Newfoundland and the Labrador region of the Canadian mainland to its west.  Gtingle used a drone to create this aerial video shot in the winter of 2017, when ice freeze caused great disruption to the province's critical fishing industry.  The province and its relationship with the sea were memorably covered by E. Annie Proulx's 1992 Pulitzer Prize winning novel, The Shipping News.

The Drone ...

Known for his nature and wildlife photography, Florian Ledoux chats with Tyler in this episode of The Drone Dish. Most of his work takes him to Arctic locations like Greenland and Canada's Federal Territories where he has captured epic aerials of polar bears, narwhals, and gigantic icebergs.  One of his aerial photos from the Arctic was featured in the seminal Time magazine special report entitled "The Drone Age", and his video "I am Fragile" was selected as a finalist in the second Drone Video Awards.
