After a bit of a break from our blog, we are back and embarking upon a new project in Antarctica. For the past few years we have been working all over the Pacific Ocean to better understand how it works, from the coral reefs of Mo’orea, French Polynesia to the deep sea off of Oregon and New Zealand. Throughout this we have continued to be amazed by the diversity and amazing life that supports humanity through a multitude of ways.
This year, and for the next 4 years, a team of 3 scientists a cinematographer, educator and visual artist (although not all at once) will join an expedition back to Antarctica to better understand the role of this vast continent in the gasses that shape our current and future climate. We will be actively blogging and sharing the experiences from August until November for the next few years.
The first step of the journey is a multi leg trip to New Zealand. Travel on COVID test willing this starts on August 15th – just a few days away.
