Lindblad webinar promises deep dive into Antarctica's geography

Lindblad Expeditions announced 'Deep Dive: Antarctica,' a new webinar concept presented via Zoom. The first in a proposed series, it will provide deeper information and insight into Antarctica as a geography.

Showcasing Lindblad's expedition team

The new format is designed to be informative and engaging, a showcase for the talent and knowledge of Lindblad’s expedition team, for an audience who wants a broader understanding of a geography, not a travel destination. 

The storytelling will showcase six Lindblad field staff as they tell the stories of Antarctica using Lindblad images, video, Google maps, graphs and other assets. They will look at Antarctica’s topography and geology, its wildlife, the surrounding ocean, its undersea, human history and more.

Live Q&A to follow

The one-hour segment has been pre-recorded to obtain maximum sound quality and imagery and will be capped with a short, live question and answer session with naturalist Ella Potts. 

Presenters include Tom Ritchie (the history of exploration), Eric Guth (glaciers), Jim Kelley (the southern 0cean), Ella Potts (whales and seals), Alyssa Adler (the Antarctic undersea) and Jamie Coleman (penguins).

'Deep Dive: Antarctica' is set for 3 p.m. EDT, Aug. 26. To participate, register here.
