  2. Alberta researchers stumble across stranded hunter in BC wilderness

    CBC Edmonton - When two University of Alberta researchers set out to a remote B.C. mountain valley this weekend, they expected to just swap out some scientific equipment and leave. Instead, they stumbled across a surprising find: a lost hunter desperate for rescue. Jonathan Ruppert and Tyana Rudolfsen, a post-doc and masters student respectively, had driven from Edmonton to switch out a handful of temperature loggers she had installed in the Flathead River Valley, just north of the U.S.-B.C. border. There, they saw a surprising sight: a disheveled man, frantically waving a silver survival blanket, attempting to catch the attention of a passing plane. Coverage also ran in the Edmonton Journal, CTV Canada AM, Radio Canada International, Huffington Post, CTV News, City TV, 630 CHED, News 660, Alberta Primetime and others.
