UK to Canada by seaDoes anyone know of any companies they'd recommend that do journeys from the UK to Canada?
I'm hoping to do a trip round Canada and Alaska, and I'm hoping to be doing conservation work over there. It feels rather counter productive to me though, flying to do conservation work. So I thought I'd be adventurous and get there by other means. Advice?

4Are you going to be one of those people with English accents who door to door soliciting for Greenpeace?
Or do a Don Staniford?
10 February, 2012 - Anti-fish farm activist Don Staniford is to be deported to Britain days after the conclusion of a 20-day defamation case in B.C. Supreme Court in Vancouver.
Staniford is fighting a defamation suit launched by Mainstream Canada, the province’s second largest salmon farming company.
“Canadian Border Services Agency has taken a very heavy-handed approach,” said Staniford, a British citizen, who does not dispute that he has been living in Canada illegally since his visa expired in 2010. Staniford suspects that the deportation order, issued on the first day of the Mainstream court case, is connected to his vocal anti-fish farm stance. He has turned over his passport and is due to be escorted out of Canada Feb. 29.

5Freighter was more what I was thinking, cruisers are out of my price range. Even freighter is a struggle. Thanks for the suggestions!
And as for my conservation work, I studied environmental science at uni, and want a career in conservation, not knocking on doors. The work I would be doing would be gain some experience for this, so I'm trying to get a volunteer placement with DOC in either Canada or Alaska.

7As a conservation biologist, I apologize for the ignorance displayed by some of the posters on this forum. Perhaps you might want to describe yourself as looking for work in wildlife science to avoid future hostility.
Check out these jobs websites: here and here. And perhaps those clueless on what conservation work can be should take a look as well.
