The Bounty Islands, is the last set of official New Zealand Subantarctic islands that were visited on the expedition. The small dots in this photo are birds of various species, and there's thousands, hundreds of thousands. These islands and surrounding rocks are gone to a large number of sea birds, one known plant (scurvy grass), a spider and a few insects. On our amazingly calm evening at the islands we could smell the guano before we see them....#remote #expedition #Subantarctic #newzealand #islands #birds #ocean #voyage

I spent the afternoon at Big Mac, the largest macaroni penguin colony on the island. It’s home to about 80 000 of these rather stylish hairstyles.

Looking out at Macquarie station which sits at an isthmus on the island with elephant seals, penguins and albatross on either side. ....#mountain #ocean #sea #waves #water #cliff #grass #explore #exploretocreate #adventure #subantarctic #expedition #travel #travelgram #bird #birding #wildoz #wild #sky #wing #wind #cold #sony #sonyalpha #a6000

@nzwhaledolphin
You get a very different perspective when you see cetaceans from above, don’t you think? - this photo was taken by David Johnston, one of our drone pilots, last winter in the Subantarctic Auckland Islands. Not only you can appreciate the animals’ size and unique callosities (photo ID) but also, using a software designed by our lab you can take a series of measurements and estimate body condition of adults and calfs. That parameter can be used for population studies and also as an indicator of the ecosystem’s health as a whole. The southern Right whale team will be back in the subantarctics this winter collecting more amazing data! #southernrightwahe #ballenafranca #subantarctic #aucklandislands #newzealand #drone #dronepilot #dronestagram #dronephotography #dronesinresearch #marinescience #photoID #nzwdt #dronework #droneaddict #conservation

You've gotta respect these big dadda sea lions, they've seen a few fights. Rough. But how about those funny little ears?!? #sealion #wildlifephotography #enderbyisland #subantarctic #ears #animals #nature #natgeo #canonaustralia

We spent all morning chasing Campbell Island Teal around the fringes of Campbell Island (Which you’d think would be easier, given they’re flightless) without managing to get any particularly good photos. Having given up and landed for our hike up the boardwalk, who should decide to come say hello? #duck #teal #campbell #island #travelphotography #newzealand #subantarctic

Sea lions are #sea mammals that are closely related to the walrus and the seal. Their range extends from the tropical waters of the global ocean in both the Northern and Southern Hemisphere to the #subantarctic, which has the largest population among all species.This male sat proudly as the Australasian #Antarctic #Expedition conducted field #research on Auckland Island.Specific species of sea #lion exhibit multiple competitive strategies for reproductive success. Strategies such as occupying important resources or defending a territory with features attractive to females during sexually receptive periods like #water. 📷 @macdiarmidj..#elearning #edtech #education #science #STEM #naturelovers #animals #explore #natgeokids_ausnz #national_geographic_kids_uk #adventure #outreach #bethechange #outdoors #discover #visualsoflife #natgeo #learningthroughplay

A lovely pair of wandering albatross enjoying each other’s company. The female is on the left. She is slightly darker and her beak a little bit shallower than her partner. As they age their darker feathers will gradually be replaced by white ones.

king penguins, Falkland Islands, UKKing penguins live on some subantarctic islands, and the falkland Islands is one of their homes which is renowned for its abundance of wildlife. These king penguins were walking along a white sand beach in a small group, the fourth one looked behind in order to see some others coming along with them.キングペンギン,フォークランド諸島,イギリスキングペンギンは亜南極の島々に生息し、多種多様な動物達で知られるフォークランド諸島もそのうちのひとつです。このキングペンギンは白砂の海岸を小さな群れで歩いていて、4番目のペンギンは後ろからついて来ている仲間の様子を見ていました。Nikon D200, 2006#kingpenguin #penguin #falklandislands #falklands #subantarctic #wildlife #wildlifephotography #nature #natgeo #yourshotphotographer #bbcearth #bbctravel #nikon #light_nikon #nikonnofilter #beautifuldestinations #lonelyplanet #photooftheday #igersjp #instagramjapan #tokyocameraclub #キングペンギン #ペンギン #フォークランド諸島 #亜南極 #動物 #自然 #ニコン

A top aerial predator and master egg thief in the making! There are quite a lot of baby brown skuas hatching out at the moment. Beautiful little birds, very well protected by their parents who scream and dive bomb anyone walking too close to the nest.

It is going to be strange to see regular sized birds again. A 3m wingspan seems so normal now... a beautiful wandering albatross glides effortlessly on those enormous wings 😊

@remotelandscapes
Where is it? Kerguelen Islands, Archipelago of the Southern Hemisphere (7215 km2), one of the most isolated lands in the world. They are located at 5300 km from the Cape of Good Hope, 4800 km from Australia and 2000 from Antarctica. The Kerguelen islands can be reached via the Marion Dufresne Vessel www.taaf.fr #kerguelen #kerguelenisland #remote #remoteisland #remotelandscapes #travel #travels #endoftheworld #adventure #travelers #exploration #antarctic #france #ocean #indianocean #subantarctic #southernocean

@barefoot_live
In the summer of 2013/14 the Australasian Antarctic Expedition set out with the aim to extend over a hundred years of scientific endeavour in the Southern Ocean and #Antarctica. Science #communication and educational outreach was to also be a key objective. Using one of three zodiacs we were able to access some of the more rugged areas of the region. The Snares are a small group of islands at 48 degrees south and 166 degrees east. The islands provide a home to endemic bird species such as the Snares penguin, snipe and tomtit. Designated as a #UNESCO World #Heritage Site these species and others continue to exist and provide a equilibrium to an ever more fragile #ecosystem.#lifelonglearning📷 @macdiarmidj
