About six months ago I mentioned Air New Zealand was running a contest to send one lucky person to Antarctica with National Geographic photographer Jason Edwards. Well, it seems they couldn’t make up their minds and decided to select two winners: Marli and Michael.
They spent two weeks on the southern continent helping researchers study microbes below the ice, penguins above the ice, and everything in between. If nothing else, watch the video below for pics of the cute baby penguins! You can also read more about Air New Zealand’s continuing effort to support research in the Antarctic.
Antarctica is one of the more challenging places to reach, but it’s someplace I hope to visit eventually.
