I am delighted that I have been selected as a team member on the International Antarctic Expedition (IAE) 2014 and the Antarctic Youth Ambassador Programme, which will be held from 8 March to 21 March 2014.

I will explore the Antarctic Peninsula with our onboard experts and gain firsthand knowledge of the continent’s fragile ecosystem. I will also experience the unique Antarctic wildlife and observe its magnificent landscape, all while learning about climate change, sustainability and what we can do to protect this last great wilderness on Earth.
As a team member I will be fully responsible for all costs of the expedition at the rate of $22,000 USD.

Not included costs:

Any airfare
Passport and visa expenses
Government arrival and departure taxes
Any meals ashore not specified in itinerary
Baggage, cancellation and medical travel insurance
Excess baggage charges
Laundry, bar, beverage and other personal charges
All clothing and equipment needed for the expedition

Antarctica! Antarctica is vast. Twice the size of Australia, it is an island continent, east of the sun, west of the moon and south of everything else. The continent holds 90% of the world’s ice and 70% of the world’s fresh water. It is the highest, driest, coldest and windiest continent on earth. Human activities in Antarctica are governed by an international agreement known as the Antarctic Treaty System, established in 1959.

This unique international agreement ensures that Antarctica is used for peaceful purposes only and that the environment is protected. Currently there is a moratorium in place that bans drilling or mining in Antarctica called the Environmental Protocol, established in 1991. This document can be reviewed after the 50-year anniversary in 2041.
