We arrived at Base Camp and everything was so well organised! With lots of helpful signs, including the one for the 'Unisex Toilet' with some graphics to suggest the rather graphic outcomes of NOT knocking before entering. Oops.

During the Expedition, I will try to post live updates on twitter as well as to facebook and the Mega Marine Survey facebook page. Also check out tweets by participants using the hashtag for the Survey #MegaMarine. These are consolidated on the Mega Marine Survey blog.
Volunteer sign up for the Southern Expedition are already closed due to limited places and early logistical arrangements needed for participation.
But no worries, you CAN still join the Survey! Lots of surveys will continue after the Expedition, just at a less frenzied rate. There will be lots of other opportunities for volunteers to participate in dredging, field surveys as well as laboratory sessions. To join the Mega Marine Survey, register your interest in this form and you'll be invited to join the mailing list to receive updates on the Survey and sign up for Survey activities. Also check out the FAQs for more about the Survey.
