Marine Science in Antarctica’s Southern Ocean as part of the SCALExperiment Spring 2019 Expedition. My polar adventure while atlasing seabirds for BirdLife SA’s AS@S Project.
This article is the result of a request from one of the Long Beach locals to learn more about the life history and migration behaviour of the tern species frequenting South Africa’s extensive coastline.
I recently spent two weeks sailing the Good Hope Line aboard the SA Agulhas II with a team from BirdLife SA. We spent the time recording the seabird and mammal species encountered between Cape Town and the Antarctic Marginal Ice Zone.
