2014 Young Blake Expedition to the Sub-Antarctic

Janice_LordjanieDr Janice Lord has been invited to accompany the Young Blake Expedition to the sub Antarctic Auckland islands this February.

The Young Blake Expedition was established by the Sir Peter Blake Foundation, to help foster leadership skills in 12 promising secondary school students. The 12 young voyagers have all shown strong leadership potential on a range of environmental issues. Funded by the Sir Peter Blake Foundation and supported by the New Zealand Navy, the main participants are a group of year 12 students (16 to 18 years of age) from around NZ.

Janice’s role will be to lead a survey on the main island, at a site proposed for a new research station.

Profiles of the 12 student voyagers, and a daily journal of their voyage are available.

More information can be found at the Sir Peter Blake trust website, or by contacting the department.
