Antarctica, South Georgia and the Falklands Talk and Slideshow with Ross Dinyari

June 7 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The global weather and temperature changes make tangible footprints in the pristine and the completely isolated frozen continent that we noticed in our four expeditions in the last 18 years to the region. Other human made footprints in Antarctica, from whaling to plastics and chemicals further work on degrading our world.  The extensive research stations in Antarctica from numerous countries measure and report the effects of human activity; apparently to the deaf ears of policy makers.

Antarctica hold the lion’s share of our world’s bio mass. Over 75% of the world marine bio mass is in and depends on the Antarctica (Southern) ocean. This presentation will show pictures of penguins (Gentoo, Chin Strap, Adelie, King, Macaroni, Rock Hopper, Magellanic), seals (Fur, Elephant, Crab Eater, Leopard, Weddell), albatross (wandering, black browed), whales (Killer, Fin, Humpback, Blue, Sperm) and other Arctic animals.
