#HorseshoeDiaries

We recently ran a similar campaign for last season's conservation project on Base Y, Horseshoe Island. You can still read all of the diary entries online and get a flavour of what's to come. 

Horseshoe (67°48'S, 67°18'W) was established as a scientific base in March 1955 and closed in August 1960. Research carried out here included geology, meteorology and topographic survey. Extensive survey trips covering hundreds of miles and lasting several months were often undertaken from the station using dog teams and sledges.
