In the heat of summer, think penguins

There are more than a few artifacts at the Whaling Museum related to historic expeditions. So naturally, we tend to think of expeditions in historical terms, just as every new exhibit may be thought of as an expedition of discovery and learning. It isn’t lately, however, that we are able note the embarkation of an actual expedition with a Museum connection such as the one scheduled for this November, and one on which you are invited to participate.

Former Whaling Museum Trustee, Dr. Michael Moore of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI), will represent the South Georgia Heritage Trust (SGHT) on an expedition cruise to Antarctica, South Georgia and the Falkland Islands, departing Ushuaia, Argentina on November 20, 2011, returning on December 8.

Made possible by SGHT’s collaboration with One Ocean Expeditions – well known for its high quality, safe and responsible Polar Expeditions – their ice-strengthened ship will take only 100 passengers. For this voyage only, One Ocean will make a generous donation to the SGHT Habitat Restoration Project, of which Dr. Moore has been part for many years.

To book, or with any other enquiry, call Denise at (970) 704-9178, or email alison.neil@sght.org. For more information see the One Ocean Expedition cruise flyer and details on the arctic exploration vessel, Akademic Ioffe.
