In 3 months time I head deep into the Southern Ocean to one of the remotest locations in the world. I am one of very small field science team that will be on Heard Island collecting rocks for a geologist, counting plastic debris for the Tangaroa Blue, standing in cold glacier water to dredge for lagoon sediment, taking photos of the thousands of seals, albatross and penguins that inhabit the island and much more.
And just maybe I can find a previously unknown “something” that will be named after me?
On the 4 March I fly to Cape Town to prepare for departure, and the week long boat trip that is required to get us to Heard Island. Along the way we’ll engage in a bit of whale watching, drop some NOAA Drifter buoys overboard and generally prepare for what is going to genuinely be a once in a life time adventure.
