I am the current chair of the NZ Antarctic Society, Canterbury Branch.
We had already good events this year and two of the highlights were the Midwinter Dinner (26 June 2015) in Christchurch and the presentation from Jacquie Foley at the Canterbury Historical Association on the Oral History Project of the Antarctic Society (14 July 2015). What us all connected in the society is our passion for the Antarctic …. and there are many topics, themes, events, actions what keeps the interest alive: History, Personal Experience, Arts, Climate Change, Marine Protected Areas, COMNAP, SCAR, Research, and much more.
The picture below is from my first trip to the Antarctic as tutor for PCAS last year:
