Antarctica, This Is For The Birds



SAM 099 One advantage of taking this trip with Quark as oppose to a normal ship is the fact that we are actually on a scientific research vessel.




On board there are numerous experts on various aspects on life in Antarctica and marine biology. This is a major benefit for us.



Bird Lecture As a part of expedition trip various lectures are offered on our free days at sea.





This afternoon I have the good fortune to attend a presentation on Birds Of The Southern Oceans.

It turns out to be an enjoyable learning experience as I become a quasi part of a scientific research team. Our sightings become a part of the ship's daily sighting report and may be useful in some of the ongoing research on board the ship.

Offers from National Geographic cannot be too far behind.
