There is an ever-growing fascination for Antarctica and all it has to offer. It is becoming a very popular trip for tourists from far and wide. This course will offer us the opportunity to learn about the geography, exploration and Management of this unique wilderness. We will have time for discussion, and hopefully watch some presentations from people who have travelled to the Antarctic.
