Snow, folk, science and dogs. From running Husky teams to medical evacuations, from simple skidoo units to major overland traverses, from radio communications to satellite wi-fi, from wooden huts to complex sci-fi stations, from sledge hammers to glider and drone technology. Despite the major leaps forward in activity and technologies, the Antarctic continues to captivate, impress and inspire those who have had the privilege to live and work in the realm of the Great White Mistress.

You cannot miss Peter Marquis’s exciting potted summary of experiences. Peter has been working as Medical Unit Administrator with the British Antarctic Survey for the past 20 years and his rich biography in the icy continent also includes a Field Guide, Leader of Rothera Research Station and Operations Manager of the British Antarctic Institute. 

The event will be in English with Bulgarian translation. 

Presented in partnership with the Bulgarian Antarctic Institute.
