South Shetland Islands, Antarctica

Whales bones, in Whalers Bay, Deception Island in the South Shetland Islands. Nearby are the remains of a whaling station built by Norweigans in the early 20th century. The station was abandoned in 1931 after a collapse in the whale oil market.

The Greenpeace ship MY Esperanza is on the final leg of the pole to pole voyage from the Arctic to the Antarctic. The almost year-long voyage is one of Greenpeace's biggest ever expeditions and highlights the many threats facing the oceans while campaigning for a Global Ocean Treaty covering all seas outside of national waters.
