Brain storming for Antarctica

Antarctic guru Denzil Miller will spend 11 days this month brain storming on the future of the icy continent while cruising from Ushuaia, Argentina, to the Antarctic Peninsula with a hand-picked party of his peers from many nations. Dr Miller, who heads up Antarctic Tasmania in Hobart and served for many years as Director of the Commission for the Conservation of Marine Antarctic Resources, was thrilled to be invited to join what amounted to a world summit. “There are issues that need to be confronted on the future of the Antarctic Treaty and the people booked on the Akademik Ioffe have a formidable array of skill and experience for this task,” Dr Miller said. “As well as looking to the future, we will enjoy the present with opportunities for land visits to the peninsula as well as Curverville, Petermann and South Shetland islands. I thought I had made my last visit to Antarctica and I’m delighted to have been given an opportunity like this.”
