MBA supports Antarctica expedition
The MBA is sponsoring Henry Evans on his epic journey to the South Pole with the International Scott Centenary Expedition. Henry and his guide Geoff Somers will trek the last 2 degrees to the South Pole to promote the legacy of Captain Scott and his men.
Henry dropped in on Monday, a week before he is due to depart, to pick up the MBA logo patches that he will stick on to his jackets. He also discussed communication with Professor Colin Brownlee, who will be undertaking research into ocean acidification aboard the James Clark Ross in the Southern Ocean at the same time.
See Henry’s Magnificent Ocean website and follow him on Twitter @Henners181
Henry did his undergraduate project on cuttlefish at the MBA, and has helped us out as a keen volunteer. We are delighted to help support him on this once-in-a-lifetime trip.
