Photographer's Note

This afternoon we did a Zodiac wildlife cruise in Cierva Cove which is located on Western side of Graham Land, Antarctic.

"Cierva Cove is named after Juan de la Cierva, the designer of the autogiro, the first successful rotating wing aircraft. The entire area has been designated an Antarctic Specially Protected area due to its rich biodiversity, which includes numbers species of nesting birds, marine mammals, vegetation, and invertebrates. The Argentine research station, Primavera is located there and operates in the summer only." Previous text from Overseas Adventure Travel Log which was provided to us at the conclusion of our adventure.

Wildlife seen on our cruise: Leopard Seals, Weddell Seals, Gentoo Penguins, Chinstrap Penguins, Antarctic Cormorants. We also saw Antarctica Hairgrass.
