We would like to thank all those who participated and contributed to our SCALE Symposium. The great presentations throughout the day provided insight on the recent cruise. On the day the winners of our recent photo competition, those that were present, were also awarded their prizes and we unveiled our APECSSA 2020 calendar and postcards. At the event it was also announced that Rudzi Silima, a recent SEAMester participant, will join the Antarctic Cities Youth Expedition (ACYE) 2019 expedition. For more on Rudzi and her outstanding achievement please have a look here.
A big thank-you also goes out to our sponsors. Sarah Fawcett, Katye Alteri, Marcello Vichi and Isabelle Ansorge sponsored the event, while the Antarctic Legacy of South Africa sponsored prizes for the photo competition winners, as well as a book on Marion Island for all the attending presenters. It would not have been possible without your assistance!
