ARCTIC to ANTARCTIC
In May 2006 we set out on an 9 month, 14,000 nautical mile voyage from the Arctic to the Antarctic in aid of the
Whale and Dolphin Conservation Society,
an organisation dedicated to protecting cetaceans internationally.
Our route, as shown in the map, was particularly relevant to whales and dolphins as many species depend upon feeding grounds in the icy northern and southern waters we visited,
while others make lengthy migrations to important breeding grounds in the tropical seas we traversed.
In these modern times it defies belief that any country has a need
to hunt whales commercially yet Japan, Norway and Iceland continue to do so.
We condemn this cruel and unnecessary slaughter and were
proud to use our voyage to raise awareness and funds for the WDCS who are actively campaigning
Undertaking this voyage was the culmination of years of dreaming and planning.
It was a demanding, rewarding and most incredible adventure and we felt
priviliged to encounter a great variety of pelagic wildlife along the way.
