Base E Conservation Team
As we enter our final week on Stonington Island we are filled with mixed emotions. There is a great sense of achievement with a huge amount of work completed including building condition surveys of all huts, an artefact catalogue of over 6000 items, just under 200 building material and paint samples, approximately 4500 franked postcards and of course, emergency repairs to all buildings. We will all, no doubt, be happy to return home to see family and friends but will certainly miss this stunning island that we have called home for the past 8 weeks. There is however one final, and poignant, task before we complete the inventory of our kit and take down camp... putting the shutters back on to Base E.
