Our 90 expeditioners spending winter at Mawson, Casey, Davis and Macquarie Island research stations send their long-distance love on Mother’s Day. Thanks to mums everywhere, from the Australian Antarctic Program.

Casey station sparky Brenden Sainty wanted to send a special message for Mother’s Day. Brenden is using his down time in Antarctica to hone his recently acquired AUSLAN skills and enjoys sharing his progress with the other expeditioners.

Although very much still on his training wheels, he hopes you enjoy his efforts.
