My colleague Barry Lyon and I will host a free webinar Wednesday, August 16, the next in our series of webinars in collaboration with Zegrahm Expeditions, in which we’ll discuss VENT’s upcoming cruise: Circumnavigation of Hokkaido: Japan’s Wild Island, May 19-June 3, 2018.
For this special trip, we’ll travel aboard the beautiful Caledonian Sky, voyaging from Honshu (“mainland” Japan) north through the Sea of Japan to Hokkaido before performing a circumnavigation of Japan’s northernmost island.
This cruise route was constructed by Mark Brazil, an expert birder and ornithologist with Zegrahm Expeditions who lives in Japan. Representing VENT will be David Wolf, one of VENT’s longest serving tour leaders who brings many years of birding.
Hokkaido is the second largest, northernmost, and least developed of Japan’s four main islands. Characterized by dramatic volcanic scenery, rugged coastlines, and numerous national parks, Hokkaido is a paradise for outdoor and wildlife enthusiasts. During scenic cruising and excursions for birds and wildlife, search for iconic Red-crowned Cranes, a variety of island and regional specialty birds, and impressive megafauna that includes eagles, Brown Bears, and whales.
