Archive of a live event with teacher Bridget Ward and researcher Dr. Heather Liwanag broadcasted live from McMurdo Station, Antarctica. Bridget and Heather discuss the research that they are working on and what it takes for a Weddell seal to survive and successfully make the transition between two extreme environments – above and below the Antarctic sea ice – in only a matter of weeks. This event was broadcast on 4 November 2019.
A worksheet to accompany the presentation is attached separately.
