Send GrrlScientist to Antarctica
There's been a contest taking place over the past two weeks to send a blogger on an all expenses-paid trip to Antarctica with Quark Expeditions. While our organizational position on Antarctic tourism is complex in that we think it's a great way to inspire people to protect a faraway region, but it's an activity that can harm fragile environments, I think if anyone is to get this job it should be someone who understands science and provide a scientific perspective on what she sees. So I am endorsing GrrlScientist, who writes a great blog and would do a great job. Vote for her here.
