The Galápagos of the Southern Ocean – Part I: Bon Voyage

By Matthew Wood 17/02/2011

The Galápagos of the Southern Ocean is an adventure tourism cruise to the sub-Antarctic islands of New Zeland and Australia run by Christchurch-based Heritage Expeditions. The rich and diverse wildlife of the region is driven by high primary productivity at these latitudes due to upwelling along major ocean fronts. The human history of the islands is one of discovery, environmental degradation and more recently, restoration and conservation. The Enderby Trust provides financial support for young adults to experience the the natural environment of the Southern Ocean and Antarctica on board Heritage Expeditions’ polar research vessel, Spirit of Enderby.
