Testimony from Polar Explorer Gilles Elkaim
Pet: Sled Dogs
My sled dogs are big fluffy aboriginal Siberians. They are powerful and fast, extremely kind and smart. They are the descendants from a team of 13 athletes I led on a 4 years solo expedition across the 12 000 km of the Eurasian Arctic. Enduring temperatures of 55°C below, merciless blizzards and pulling a 500 kg loaded sled, they never failed. They were my best and only companions, my only mean of survival.
Their ancestors primitive dogs were fed with game and fish giving them the proteins to survive in this harsh environment. The extreme expeditions I am leading compel me to get the best and most natural food for them. With Forza10, I found what my dogs need most : energy and health.
Next summer, I will embark in an expedition never yet attempted across the Arctic ocean and to the North Pole. For 2 years I, with my 6 best sled dogs, will drift aboard our sailing boat across this frozen ocean, living in complete self-sufficiency. Through this challenge, I wish to raise awareness on preserving the Arctic. Forza10 will be our most strategic partner to reach our goal.
