Antarctica is as close as we can get to visiting another planet while still remaining on Earth – and that’s exactly why Dr. Lee G. Simmons (Doc), chairman of the board of the Omaha Zoo Foundation, and his wife, Marie, chose it for their January 2020 expedition.
“The views are simply out-of-this-world,” says Doc, who has visited the southernmost continent before. “No pictures can do justice to the sight of a monstrous glacier calving icebergs into the ocean. Or the surreal arches and spires and windows that the water has sculpted into floating icebergs. You just have to see it for yourself.”
