Summary
Over 2,000 miles southwest of Australia, Heard Island is wet, windy, and one of the few unspoiled environments left on earth. In this program, scientists and researchers from a wide array of disciplines undertake a six-month expedition to this remote spot that serves as a precise barometer of climate change and global warming. The team conducts studies ranging from archaeological excavations of Heard Island's once-bustling seal blubber industry to ornithological surveys of migratory sea birds and their diets
