Young, British, Antarctic Explorers Wanted!

Are you between the ages of 18 and 23, have a zest for adventure, and a resident of the U.K.? Then you may want to check out BSES’s Antarctic Gap Year Expedition. You’ll have the opportunity to explore Antarctica aboard the HMS Endurance from November 2007 to January 2008.

I received a press release on this unusual and very cool opportunity earlier in the day, and thought that it sounded like such a great opportunity for the right people. In the press release was this quote:

“We are looking for volunteers to join our team of explorers and scientists who are ready to experience the Antarctic region’s variety of wildlife, scenery, geology and history. They need to have some mountaineering experience, love being outside and working with people, as well as having a thirst for science,” said Pat Parsons, leader of the Antarctic region expedition.

In all, 12 people will be selected to join the Endurance crew. If you’re interested, send an e-mail to for more informaiton. Or, drop me an e-mail and I’ll forward the press release on to you.

Oh to be young again. And, you know, British. 🙂
