Lindblad Naturalist and Citizen Science Coordinator, Dr. Jimmy White


What’s the ultimate bucket-list trip? The expedition that combines Antarctica and South Georgia. You experience the very best of ice and landscape in Antarctica combined with the overwhelming abundance of wildlife on South Georgia. I have traveled across the planet, seeking out the most incredible landscapes and wildlife encounters. Dawn at Gold Harbour South Georgia—when the sun breaks the horizon and a hundred thousand king penguins all wake up next to you—will forever be at the top of my list.

With the launch of the Citizen Science program, how do you help guests contribute to the environment? The Citizen Science program is an incredible opportunity for people to directly contribute to the conservation of one of the world’s most spectacular wildlife destinations in South Georgia. Lindblad guests will seek to photograph every living thing at selected landing sites we visit throughout the season. Anybody with a phone can collect data. This creates a record of the ecosystem at this known point in time. We can use this information to understand what invasive species are present, where they are, and allocate management resources appropriately. So often people are asked to contribute money to a cause and are not sure how effective contributions are. The Citizen Science program is direct action by you; by contributing your time and attention you can directly help to conserve this fragile ecosystem.
