Association of Polar Early Career Scientists

Calling all Antarctic researchers and staff! Are you travelling to or over-wintering on Antarctica this year (November 2020 – January 2021)? If you are heading to Antarctica or any of the surrounding Antarctic islands this winter, we would love your help with our UK Polar Network Antarctic Flags Project! All we ask is that you take some flags (however many you are willing to take) sent to you as a .pdf or .jpg and photograph them in Antarctica as proof that they have made it there. For more info, please visit or get in touch at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Jennifer (UKPN Antarctic Flags Coordinator).
