I'm more than three months over the last forty years and aged 7% who replaces him on receiving. This expedition now allows tourists to come face to face the realities of climate change. Seeing science. In action Ari Friedlander and a team every such as scanning the horizon searching the whales. These marine biologists have come from all over the United States to Antarctica to study the pressures facing the humpback and Ming -- well population.
