Cheeseman’s Ecology Safari’s has been leading expeditions to the Antarctic for decades, but this upcoming tour is extra special as it coincides with Shackleton’s 100th anniversary of his own Antarctic expedition. There is still room on their upcoming tour so if you wanted to learn more now is the time. Besides being a teacher and expedition leader, Doug is an exceptional photographer and will have beautiful photographs to share. In their own words, “Explore the vast colonies of King Penguins and other charming penguins, Elephant Seals in their peak of breeding activity, and colonies of nesting albatross. The landscape of glaciers pouring into the sea and snow-capped peaks provides rare beauty and photogenic impressiveness that words cannot convey.”No Charge but call to reserve your seat.
