Update | November, 2015: 
Our recent Circumnavigation of South Georgia expedition has returned with great news—the island may be rodent free for the first time in centuries! South Georgia pipits were flying in abundance, and several South Georgia pintails made appearances as well, both species thought to be previously near extinction. We've long assisted the South Georgia Heritage Trust, as have our guests, and this time was no different; our travelers raised $7,000 in...

With the largest concentrations of penguins, seals, and albatross to be found anywhere on the planet, South Georgia has been dubbed, “The Serengeti of the Southern Ocean.” And, while large birdlife usually takes center stage on South Georgia, the island was once a thriving small-bird community as well, comprised of storm petrels, prions, blue petrels, and pipits. However, with the introduction of rats by whalers and sealers, the small-bird population is being devastated...

The albatross is one of nature's true wonders. These seabirds can soar for hours, riding on the wind, ranging for thousands of miles over open ocean. The wandering albatross, the largest seabird in the world, remains at sea for years before returning to land to nest. For centuries, sailors considered these birds sacrosanct; to kill an albatross was to court disaster.

A cruel irony, then, that oceangoing fishermen are now responsible for drastic declines in 17 different albatross...

As our 2010 Antarctica, South Georgia, and Falkland Islands’ trip comes to a close, we thought it was the perfect time to learn more about the important climate work being conducted in this remote area of the world. Below is a post written by Spruce Schoenemann, a Glaciology graduate student in the University of Washington’s Department of Earth and Space Sciences.

It’s a pleasure to be sharing some of my Antarctic experiences with you! I’m sure some of you...
