Tim Jarvis, explorer and environmental scientist
Friday 1 June 2012, 5.30-7.30pm
Tim Jarvis AM, the renowned polar explorer and environmental scientist, will be giving a talk to the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG)’s Singapore branch on 1 June 2012.
Tim combines a love of adventure with a passion for environmental issues through his work as an environmental scientist and explorer. He famously recreated Sir Douglas Mawson’s Antarctic expedition of 1912 in which both of Sir Douglas’ colleagues died, to test whether he would have had to turn to cannibalism to survive, and is now planning to re-enact Shackleton’s epic 1916 journey in a small sailing boat across 800 miles of the Southern Ocean from Elephant Island to South Georgia.
