Expedition 2: Falkland Islands!

Located 300 miles off the southeastern coast of South America, the Falklands are home to some of the world’s largest penguin, seal, and sea bird colonies. The islands were also once home to an extinct species of fox called the warrah. How and when did the warrah reach the Falklands? Follow Kit Hamley, Masters student, UMaine Climate Change Institute, as she travels to the Falklands to unravel the mystery. Interact with Kit through the Follow a Researcher™ program and learn about field and laboratory techniques in the fields of paleoecology, paleoanthropoly, and archaeology. The adventure begins December 2015, and continues through January and February!
