Today we finished the final leg of the Drake Passage and arrived into the South Shetland Islands. But before landing it was important to go through a bio-security protocol to protect the pristine environment of Antarctica. These protocols involve cleaning and disinfecting all footwear and removing any potential seeds from fabrics. This insures we don’t bring invasive species with us that could potentially take root in Antarctica.
