What's On

What lurks below?

When a giant iceberg twice the area of Port Phillip broke off the Larsen-C Ice Shelf in July 2017 it opened up sea-floor covered by ice for thousands of years. This prompted the British Antarctic Survey to coordinate a voyage to the newly exposed environment. 

Museum Victoria's collection manager Melanie Mackenzie was on the team of international scientists' trying to sample marine life in this unforgiving environment but things did not go to plan... 

Join us on World Environment Day as Melanie describes the trials and triumphs of working in this challenging and beautiful environment.
