Aurora Opens Invite For Antarctic Climate Expedition

Aurora Expeditions is calling for applications to join the world-first Antarctic Climate Expedition in 2023, led by renowned oceanographer, marine biologist, explorer and conservationist Dr. Sylvia Earle. 

Open to all, the expedition welcomes registrations of interest from thought-leaders in the fields of science, art, education and economics, alongside inquisitive teenagers and corporate executives to apply to be part of this pivotal and far-reaching climate summit expedition to the most spectacular and biodiverse wilderness regions of Antarctica.

Limited to about 100 expedition guests from around the world, this ‘by-invitation’ Climate Summit will comprise conservationists, high-profile personalities and ocean luminaries to raise public and government awareness of the splendour and importance of the Antarctic.

The groundbreaking 12-day Antarctic Climate Expedition starts on February 13, 2023, with two nights and a full-day conference in Ushuaia, Argentina followed by a nine-day voyage onboard Aurora Expeditions’ brand-new ship, the Sylvia Earle, and ends with a post-voyage night in Punta Arenas, Chile.

The Aurora expedition route features the Drake Passage, Aitcho Islands off the Antarctic Peninsula, Hope Bay, Brown Bluff, Enterprise Island and Lemaire Channel, among other key destinations.

In partnership with Ocean Geographic and Dr. Earle, the expedition’s master plan is to address the warming climate and loss of ice in the southern polar region as a direct threat to the future of human life on our planet.

The expedition will confront the consequences of environmental change and develop creative strategies to radically reduce carbon emissions. Expedition members will help formulate 23 resolutions to inspire transformative changes for global net-zero emission by 2050. Other outcomes will include a series of lectures, a feature documentary, exhibitions and a book.

Named in honour of Dr. Earle, the new purpose-built ship is designed for discovery to the most remote and beautiful places on earth. Its revolutionary ULSTEIN X-BOW also allows the ship to cross oceans more comfortably and efficiently.

The Sylvia Earle is the ideal ‘base camp’ for adventures at the outer limits of human exploration. The ship has everything you need to maximise comfort and relaxation while making enriching discoveries. The ship also features a modern lecture lounge, a Citizen Science Centre, multiple observation areas, Zodiac launching platforms, mud room, gym, spa and wellness centre. Every cabin features an ocean view and nearly all include balconies.
