And we're on the home straight.... if you haven't yet pledged your support for climate action by some of the world's smartest and most passionate scientists, NOW is the time!
Show your support here>> https://pozible.com/project/climate-action-in-antarctica
The campaign has just hit 33% funded and there's now less than 3 days to go. It's a BIG task, but I know you guys will really help this get over the line.
Just a reminder that funds (and rewards) aren't received if the target isn't reached by this Thursday. So, if you're keen to show your support for climate action and women in science, please do so soon!
No amount is too small - the price of a coffee alone will make a BIG difference!
And please share, share, share!
BIG thanks to everyone who pledged their support today, including Jacey Kraut, Bianca Johnston, Jen Shaw, Victoria Gibson, Lauren Phelp, Jessica Donovan, Lauren Taylor, Lovetrek Tours, Samantha Corrie, Vicki Hansen, Deborah Thorpe, Tanya Fyfe, Melanie Bettle, Rochelle Dickson, Kristy Payne, Fiona Lukeis, Bonnie Cassen, Angela Williams, Suzanne Flynn, Linda Marie Weigl, Karena Scott, Michelle Kara Templeton, Deearne Burrows, Katie Middlemast and Natasha Wright.
The support from each and every one of you means the world to me.

Every time I post a photo of the Antarctic landscape, I'm reminded of this lovely phrase by C Rajagopalachari describing the monkey god Hanuman from the Hindu epic The Ramayana: something along the lines of "even gravely wounded, his handsome beauty was unmarred, perhaps even distilled"
She survived trials in the Arctic and Antarctic waters, only to disappear without a trace in the Pacific... 100 years have passed since the famous polar vessel Aurora left Newcastle, never to be seen again. We delve into her history and the mystery of her fate in our latest blog bit.ly/pluckyaurora
The ship’s lifebuoy (seen here), recovered from the seas six months later, was recently donated to the museum & is now on display.
Sharing this for Canoe Day. I have to say I was envious at the Ines that got to leave the ship and explore Antarctica this way!
“Requiem for the Antarctic Coast” by Lou Sheppard is a composition for piano and strings extracted from the shape of the coast-line of the Antarctic Peninsula, between Joinville Island at the tip of the peninsula, and Wordie Island in the Grandidier Channel. This 550km (plus) of coastline is the same that was covered by the Antarctic Biennale Expedition from March 17-27, 2017. A grid, which referenced a musical staff, was laid over satellite imagery of the coast. Points were determined on the grid where the contour lines of the satellite image came to a point, or shifted direction. This grid was then notated and transcribed into a musical score.
The composition was originally performed on site at Wordie Island, on March 21, 2017.
This work takes the shape of a requiem, which is both a funeral service and a celebration of life, recognizing that as our global environment shifts, Antarctica’s ice is under threat.

Here's the plane I flew on when going to Antarctica for the 10-hour flight from Christchurch. I got to be friends with the US Military guys on the plane. One guy named Randy was quite the photo enthusiast so we spent the whole time geeking out about cameras and stuff. As soon as we landed on the ice in Antarctica, the tail of the CL-130 plane opened up (like in the movies), and he ran outside, made a huge snowball and hurled it at me and screamed, "Welcome to Antarctica Motherfucker!" #cl130#aircraft#adventure#antarctica#South#ice
