Today has been a sad day for the Conservation Team - we had to say goodbye to Adele, our friend and Field Assistant who left Port Lockroy on the National Geographic Explorer to return to New Zealand.
She has been a crucial member of the team responsible for our health and safety and communications as well as keeping the field camp ship shape and helping with the conservation work.
We will miss her for many reasons including her hard work, passion for Port Lockroy as well as her sense of humour. Today marks the beginning of the end of this year’s conservation programme with only 9 days left until the rest of the Conservation Team depart. Hopefully, we will get some fine weather before then to complete the painting of Base A.
