I am a native in this world And think in it as a native thinks

Hi, Greenpeace!


We saw this Greenpeace ship near the end of the trip, when we'd reached more northerly waters and seeing other ships became more common. A week after I got home, I saw an article in The Guardian about the expedition, which was looking for creatures in previously unexplored sections of the Antarctic seabed.
The rare species were found by Dr Susanne Lockhart, an Antarctic biologist who visited the seafloor in a submarine last month as part of a scientific expedition organised by campaigning organisation Greenpeace.
It's worth going to the link to see pictures of the creatures she found on the ocean floor -- you can see the red submarine she used on the deck of the ship in my picture.
