Pollen and penguins

Medical doctor, scientist and pollen counter extraordinaire Dr Danielle Medek is heading south, way way south. To Antarctica!

Danielle is one of a select group of 78 women in science and related fields who are traveling to the frozen continent for an intensive 20-day leadership programme. She believes women have an important role to play in curbing climate change and in helping create a liveable world that we can share with plants and animals. On this trip Danielle will discover how to lead, protect and hopefully heal a changing world.

So we’re giving Danielle a shout. For more information, including ways of you can help support her trip, visit her website.
