When travelling to Antarctica it is important you are prepared for your expedition. Cool It! is the new card game from the Union of Concerned Scientists that teaches kids about the choices we have when it comes to climate change�and how policy and technology decisions made today will matter. When we camp, it’s just us and the penguins and seals.

Tens of thousands of king penguins, stunning scenery, immense jagged mountains, pristine beaches and whaling stations (of Shackleton fame) allow South Georgia to offer visitors an entirely different experience than the Antarctic Peninsula alone. The process of consumption involves the killing of the prey.

These small crustaceans are important organisms of the zooplankton, particularly as food for baleen whales, manta rays, whale sharks, crabeater seals, other seals, and a few seabird species that feed almost exclusively on them. The years 2007-2011 experienced the five lowest Arctic sea ice minimum extents in the satellite record, and the years 2002-2011 experienced nine of the ten lowest minima on record.

Throughout his time on Scott's expedition, Bowers kept a meticulous diary, which recorded not only the events of each day, but also his own thoughts, hopes and fears.
