Beyond Endurance : Shackelton's Journey to South Georgia

This talk was presented at the Wilderness Hotel & Spa on 23rd May, 2018.

Joan Louwrens (Antarctic Doctor) tells an inspiring story about Shackelton's Journey to South Georgia, an incredible testament to the potential of the human spirit and its ability to endure beyond imagination as Shackelton, Worsley and Crean became the first mountaineers of South Georgia Island in order to save their lives and the lives of their stranded crew.

Flight of the Egrets

The cattle egrets do a daily migration from the vleis to areas around and west of George. As the day gets lighter they fly from the vleis along the Touw River in multiple flocks each consisting of 10's or 100's of birds. This continues for upto 10 minutes with a few strays coming through later. They return at sunset along a very similar route. The video clip covers just a part of this daily event. To see them live one of the best places is the boardwalk alongside Waterside Rd. Get there at least 15 minutes before sunrise when it is moderately light.
