>From the Andes to Antarctica: Exploring the Scotia Arc


The Scotia Arc is a narrow chain of islands in the Southern Ocean linking
the southernmost Andes and the Antarctic Peninsula. Join Audubon members
Lynne Givler and Keith Carpenter as they share their experience exploring
this remarkable region aboard Quark Expedition’s Sea Spirit. Learn about
the natural and cultural history of the Falkland Islands and South Georgia
and venture onward to the South Sandwich Islands, perhaps one of the least
visited areas on the planet. Circling back towards the Antarctic Peninsula
come ashore at Elephant Island where 22 members of Ernest Shackleton’s
Endurance expedition survived for 135 days. And finally step foot on the
southernmost continent itself. See photos ranging from penguins to icebergs
and old whaling stations to southern right whales selected from the
hundreds posted by all of the travelers on the ship.

Lynne Givler’s passion for natural history began peering into tidepools
while pursuing a degree in marine sciences. Only later, working as a marine
naturalist, did it strike her that marine birds were just as captivating as
marine invertebrates. Keith Carpenter’s fascination with the sea led him
from surfing in sunny California to salmon fishing in Alaska. Today he
remains in cold water, active in the local reefnet salmon fishery.

Always on the 4th Tuesday of the month:
February 23, 7pm at the Whatcom Museum
(in the Rotunda Room of the Old City Hall building)
free & open to the public!
