Your Chance to Win a Trip to Antarctica — But…

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.

Other rules, terms and conditions apply.

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…
