Our Antarctic and Marine Campaigner, Alistair Allan, will be onboard this epic voyage south and will be sending dispatches and updates from the wild Southern Ocean, as the ship makes its journey from the windswept dunes of Namibia to the cathedral-like icebergs of the Antarctic continent.
After successfully halting the Australian Government’s plans to build a giant concrete airport in Antarctica, this expedition is the beginning of the next big steps to protect this incredible ecosystem.
