Lara Kruiskamp, from South Africa, is running the 2013 Antarctic Marathon to raise support for the ongoing work of Oceanites’ Antarctic Site Inventory project. As our followers are aware, the Inventory remains the only nongovernmental, publicly supported, scientific research project working in Antarctica — monitoring penguin population changes in the markedly warming Antarctic Peninsula.

We’re grateful to Lara for her efforts on our behalf and, for sure, we’d be grateful for your supporting her and us, conserving Antarctica for future generations.Donations may be by visiting the following URLs:
