The Ice Warrior Project

Ordinary People Taking the Pulse of the Planet

The Earth with a green ring around it

"For over sixty years we have known that the polar regions are key to our survival as human beings. They provide a cooling effect which allows us to live in what would otherwise be an uninhabitable environment. We know rapid and unprecedented changes are occurring in the Arctic that effect the rest of the world and yet, scientifically it is still poorly understood.


Since 2001, Ice Warrior has trained over 450 ordinary people from all walks of life to become competent, safe modern-day explorers, undertaking seven major, ground-breaking, purposeful and worthwhile expeditions that have significantly contributed to our knowledge of the Arctic. Our quest is to help scientists gauge the pulse of the planet by developing people, to discover change and deliver it to global audiences in a way which engages everyone in the climate problem we face and which fosters a much better appreciation of the world we live in and on; ultimately, helping us to survive."

Jim McNeill - Explorer and Founder

Why Warrior?

A modern-day warrior is not about war. 

Is not about building armies and conquering nations.

Is not about aggression and domination.

A modern-day warrior is about the person.

Honesty, integrity, empathy, intelligence, courage, tenacity, resolve. Quietly solid.

A modern-day warrior is about purpose.

And there can be no better purpose than our guardianship of the planet we live on

- our existence and survival as a species amongst all species.

We are a fundamental part of nature and our need is to understand, constantly learn and develop

In conjunction with every other species on Earth.

The problem we face is not about “saving the planet” - the planet will go on.

It’s about saving life on Earth.

We are supposed to be intelligent.

Let’s use that intelligence for the benefit of all - before it is too late.
