The Franklin Expedition search

The Franklin Expedition search is back! And this year, it’s bigger than ever before! Canada’s media is buzzing over this summer’s search for the lost ships from Sir John Franklin’s 1845 Expedition. Private and public partners will head to Victoria Strait to look for HMS Erebus and HMS Terror, with more ships and new technology increasing the search area that can be covered and raising hopes the vessels will be found! For all the latest news, visit our Franklin Expedition website.
