Polar Explorer Ann Daniels is a world record holder and one of Britain’s leading female explorers. In 2002, Ann became the first woman in history to ski to the North and South Poles as part of all women teams. She has sledge-hauled over 4000 miles, in the most inhospitable environments in the world, completing over 10 polar expeditions and surviving over 400 days on the ice. She understands the importance of a positive attitude in the most difficult circumstances. As a Polar guide and the only leader of all 3 Catlin Arctic surveys, pioneering expeditions to better understand the difficulties facing the magnificent and fragile Arctic Ocean, she has seen at first hand the disappearing Arctic sea ice.
Her achievements have been recognised by many bodies including the Guinness book of records, The Pride of Britain Awards, The Foreign Office and the Women of the Year Awards. She has appeared on t.v. and radio and along with bringing up her four children is currently working on her next record breaking project.
