British Antartic Survey
OE Anthony Crook (Craig 2005–10) is currently working in Antarctica as a research assistant for the British Atlantic Survey (BAS) and has written his first blog recounting his experiences.
Anthony, who studied for an BSc in Marine Zoology and then an MSc in Ecological Consultancy at Newcastle University, is now carrying out research on benthic marine invertebrates. He is based at the BAS research station at Rothera.
On the day of his departure he visited Sir Ernest Shackleton's former home at 14 Milnthorpe Road, Eastbourne. He commented: 'As I walked down the path from his house, I was literally walking in his footsteps!'
