Dr. Michael Wenger

Michael Wenger, born in 1972, had caught the fever of discovery and travel from an early age. At the age of 17, he lived in Australia for a year, where he fell in love with the ocean and fish. During his biology studies on marine fish, however, the polar virus grabbed him on Svalbard. Despite years of “resistance”, including research and academic degrees, the virus did not let him go. So he changed career and instead of creating polar knowledge, he conveys it on trips, lectures and articles at PolarJournal.

Julia Hager

Julia Hager’s fascination with the Polar Region and passion for seafaring were awakened early on: Already during her marine biology studies starting in 2005 she took part in scientific ship expeditions to Antarctica, the Bering Sea, the North Pacific and the North Atlantic. During a two-year stay in Oregon, she encountered the ubiquitous plastic pollution of the beaches and her love of marine life suffered a shock at the sight of the animals injured by plastic. She has pursued this global environmental problem for over ten years now and she passes on her experience, her knowledge of plastic pollution to all age groups, including polar travelers in her role as tour guide.

Kevin McGwin

Kevin McGwin is a journalist who has been writing about Greenland and the Arctic since 2006. Between 2013 and 2017, he was editor of The Arctic Journal. He then worked as a freelance journalist and translator, wrote articles for Arctic Today, contributed occasionally to the Greenlandic weekly Sermitsiaq AG, and has written for a number of other Arctic-related websites. In addition, he runs his own website, The Rasmussen, which follows the spirit of Arctic Journal and provides “regional news with a global perspective.” He has been a part of the PolarJournal team since January 2022, writing articles on a wide variety of topics, primarily from the Arctic.

Heiner Kubny

When Heiner Kubny traveled to the polar regions for the first time in 1997, he did not yet know how much this trip would change his life. Driven again and again by the beauty, tranquility and beautiful wildlife in the icy worlds, he visited his heart’s world again and again. In the meantime, he has become one of the established polar specialists. He visited the “refrigerators” of our earth numerous times on expeditions by air, on research and expedition cruises or simply on foot. His contributions cover diverse topics, just like his beloved polar regions.
