As part of Exodus' commitment to conservation and responsible travel, we have teamed up with Penguin Lifelines, a conservation project set up by the Zoological Society of London and Oxford University to understand the impact of climate change and fisheries on Antarctic penguins and to design a protected area network.
Following successful trips with Exodus in 2010, 2011 and 2012, we are pleased to have Dr Tom Hart, penguinologist (yes, that really is his job title!) once again joining five of our 2012/13 departures to Antarctica. Whilst on board, Tom gives lectures about his on-going work to protect penguins and the threats they face. If you have any penguin-related questions during the voyage, then he's the person to ask!

Dr Tom Hart explains all:
WHAT DO WE WANT TO ACHIEVE THIS YEAR? Click here to see more ...
Our goals are simple:
Tom will be joined by Ben Collen from ZSL, who will mainly be working on the satellite camera. Gemma Clucas takes over from Ben in December and will be focused on genetic samples. Finally, Mike Polito joins at the end of December and will be focused on the stable isotope samples.
Perhaps the most exciting thing this year is the prospect of the satellite linked camera. If it works, this is going to revolutionize monitoring around Antarctica - we will be able to monitor wildlife in places we only visit every 10 years!
WHAT CAN YOU DO TO HELP?
1) Firstly, if you are planning on joining a Polar trip to Antarctica, please make everyone in your group aware of what Exodus are doing. Help us spread the word!
2) Join one of our special Tom Hart departures aboard the Ocean Diamond to help his ongoing research and get involved in the monitoring wildlife in such a remote area.
3) If you would like to contribute to Penguin Lifelines, we invite you to 'adopt a colony'. You can contribute to the placing of a web camera that will be used to monitor the penguins with minimal disruption to their environment. You can donate by clicking the "donate now" button.
