Headless Penguins of Antarctica

Headless Penguins of Antarctica

Now that I am back in Ushuaia it has been a good time to look through and back up my photos. I have hundreds of penguin shots from a distance, up close, in groups or alone.  However one thing that I seemed to have shot a lot of is the seemingly headless penguins.  These photos … Continue reading

Antarctic Seals v Sealions

Antarctic Seals v Sealions

In my final week of work, my colleague Michaela said to write a blog on the difference between seals and sealions.  Luckily, one of the first lectures on board the Antarctic cruise was this, and then, during the trip, I was lucky enough to see five species of seal in the Antarctic.

Whilst working for Sanctuary Retreats I have found out more about various conservation projects … Continue reading

Go Ape!

Go Ape!

Working for a safari lodge operator, wildlife research and content writing played a large part of my day-to-day role.  I decided to do some research into the four different types of apes – gorillas, orangutans, chimpanzees and gibbons, and what made them different to monkeys.  Oh, add to that, where you can see each of … Continue reading
