Your Chance to Win a Trip to Antarctica — But…
A dd April 25 to the list of holidays on your calendar, as today is apparently World Penguin Day — and in celebration of that, you have a chance to win a trip to Antarctica by becoming a “citizen scientist” as well as a penguin enthusiast.
You are invited to take action in penguin research by “counting” penguins in photographs taken from remote penguin sites in Antarctica to assist in the conservation of penguins; and by doing so, you will have a chance to win a 11-day Antarctica Explorer voyage by Quark Expeditions to “encounter these tuxedoed birds” in their natural habitat.
The total approximate retail value of the prize is US$7,995.00, which includes the following…
- All breakfasts, lunches and dinners on board throughout your voyage.
- All shore landings and Zodiac excursions per the daily program.
- A pair of waterproof expedition boots on loan for shore landings.
- A Quark Expeditions parka — yours to keep.
- Coffee, tea, cocoa and bottled water available around the clock.
- Hair dryer and bathrobe on loan for the duration of the voyage.
- All miscellaneous service taxes and port charges throughout the program.
…but this competition is only open to all residents of the United Kingdom, Europe and North America — excluding Québec, Canada and Australian residents — who have a valid passport and have attained the age of 21 by Wednesday, April 15, 2015.
You have until Monday, May 25, 2015 to enter this competition; and there is a limit of one registration per person. Although no purchase is necessary, you are required to register with Zooniverse in order to participate in this competition.
I have already entered the competition and hope to win, as I have mentioned many times in the past that traveling to Antarctica is one of my top travel priorities which I truly hope to realize one day; but I thought I would share this potential opportunity with you — and if I do not win, then I hope that you win instead…
…and this is a good opportunity to learn more about penguins, if you are so inclined.
In the meantime, happy World Penguin Day; and I hope that you were able to take the day off…
