This March our Operations Delivery Manager, Caroline Marriage, will be joining renowned polar explorer, Sir Robert Swan OBE, on his next 2041 Foundation ClimateForce expedition to Antarctica.


Having been struck down with Covid over the past week, Caroline’s latest blog post is all about the complications of planning a trip to Antarctica during a pandemic, including delays and testing requirements. Hoping it all goes smoothly from now on, Caroline is now celebrating her freedom by testing out a camera for the trip and her bird photography skills.


5 weeks to go!
