I have spent almost my entire life educating others about environmental issues and giving both financially and via volunteering to environmental groups and nature charities. I have raised money for rhinos for my birthday, and give a portion of each paycheck to several environmental and wildlife organizations, even though I work 2 jobs to make ends meet. I am working towards helping build a sustainable future for the planet. I would love to have a chance to see this amazing place before it is too late, but financially that is not something that I will be able to do any time soon, if ever.

Motivation

Jeremy's motivation

I believe this is a once in a lifetime opportunity to see one of the last remaining wild places on the planet. Unfortunately, time is ticking before climate change vastly changes the region, and I want to see it while it is still there! The expedition sounds like a dream chance to experience the Antarctic region and something I would very much like to be a part of.

Puffin – The Atlantic and Horned Puffin have black bodies with white bellies. The tufted puffin has an entirely black body. All three have white faces with colourful (red, yellow, and orange) beaks.
