We’re travelling to Antarctica!

Join us on a journey to Antarctica! This vast, ice covered continent is home to some of the most diverse species on our planet. It is a cornerstone of the planet's global ecosystem; a window to the world; a symbol of peace, understanding and conservation; and one of the greatest classrooms on Earth.

SOI has led 15 expeditions to the Antarctic and we look forward to returning in 2022! Join us on The Bridge where we’ll learn about Antarctica’s diverse birds, how to start a polar career, why Canada should become a consultative member of the Antarctic Treaty and more. Then test it all in a live trivia night!
Have you ever considered working in Antarctica? Dr. Jenny Baeseman is an innovative, creative science and educational consultant (and SOI alum!), who will be joining us on The Bridge to discuss polar careers for young scientists! Interviewing her will be Samantha McBeth, early-career researcher, polar guide, SOI & Canada C3 alum. Thursday, July 9th at 1pm EST.
Join us for a live Facebook interview on July 14 at 5pm EST with Patagonian ornithologist, Santiago Imberti, to listen to and learn about Antarctica’s diverse species of birds including the spectacular wandering albatross. Hosted by SOI alum and fellow birder Brendan Kelly, this is an event you will not want to miss!

Did you know?

Did you know that there are 18 different species of penguins. Most of these flightless marine birds can be found on islands in the sub Antarctic between latitudes  45° and 60° S. Only two live exclusively in Antarctica. These are the emperor and Adélie penguins. This fact may help you with our trivia night coming up!
