Sunday, April 28, 2024 10:00 AM

Join us as Marlo Garnsworthy shares her incredible journey to Antarctica as a United States Antarctic Program Grantee. Marlo’s seven-week expedition was a life-changing experience, with one particular moment standing out: her encounter with an iceberg in the Ross Sea early one morning. Marlo’s perspective on Antarctica has transformed her, and she now dedicates her work to enlightening people, both young and old, about the extraordinary wonders of this continent. She emphasizes the interconnectedness between all of us, particularly those residing in coastal communities, and the importance of preserving and cherishing Antarctica’s remarkable nature.

Marlo Garnsworthy, an acclaimed author and illustrator, has an extensive background in both the arts and scientific research expeditions at sea. She excels as a science communicator and ardently supports the field of polar science. Currently, Marlo holds the position of Education and Outreach Coordinator, as well as the US Media Contact, for the international Antarctic project SWAIS2C (Sensitivity of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet to 2 Celsius).
