Research at Okak (Audio)

An archeologist plus four students will be in Okak this summer.

Peter Whitbridge is an archeologist who will be going Okak to do more research and mapping.

He says the group will leave Nain on the 21 of July and return around August 5.

Whitbridge says he was having a complicated time in trying to make their travel arrangements, but he says he was lucky to get Willie Fox to take them up on his longliner.

He says they will be getting picked up on speedboats to come back to Nain.
