Air New Zealand has launched a global search for an environmental enthusiast interested in sharing the wonders of the Antarctic frozen continent with the world.
The recipient of this once-in-a-lifetime experience will team up with National Geographic photographer Jason Edwards before flying south to the frozen continent for two weeks. He or she will not only live at New Zealand’s Scott Base research support station in one of the most fragile and special places on earth, they will also help draw worldwide attention to global environmental issues and the scientific research underway in Antarctica to address these.
The best suited candidate will have a passion for the environment and want to play a role in building awareness of the efforts we all need to make in order to better protect the world we live in. Strong communication skills are a must, along with a healthy respect for the difficult operating conditions in Antarctica.
Budding Explorers can apply here: Air New Zealand – Voice for Antartica before Wednesday, November 6th at 11:00 pm EST.
Good luck to all scientists and filmmaker colleagues! May the best dressed-in-parka candidate win.
