Antarctica is the coldest, windiest, driest place on earth. Two-thirds of all our planet’s fresh water is locked up there in the form of ice in a continent twice the size of Australia. The last continent to be understood, it is a harsh and unforgiving environment that challenged and took the lives of many early explorers. Although an ice sheet covers 99 percent of the land, the exposed areas along the coast nourish a wealth of tiny plants and sea creatures which in turn support the world’s greatest concentrations of wildlife in the sea, on land, and in the air.
Lecturer Barry Pell traveled by ship to Antarctica for two weeks in January 2017. Based on his travels on the sea and excursions onto the land, he will discuss and show his photography of this most magnificent and unique continent.
