The heartbeat of Antarctica is stored in its ice. But there is abundant life in the waters surrounding Antarctica. The coastal shores are literally teeming with life. It’s the ocean, with its abundance of krill and plankton, that fuels Antarctica’s marine life and draws countless animals to these waters, like these Gentoo Penguins at Cuverville Island. This is were we made our first landing during this expedition.
I will try to keep posting images over the next three weeks during my expeditions in Antarctica, however I may not be able to post a new photo every day.
