Scott Shackleton: Antarctic Adventures!

On Monday, May 15 the Lindsay Wildlife Alliance hosted a brunch and special guest.

Captain Scott Shackleton, who fulfilled his lifelong dream of traveling to the South Pole, presented to the Alliance after the annual spring brunch. His presentation: Antarctic Adventures! 

 

Scott Shackleton is a cousin of Sir Ernest Shackleton, who is best known for his horrific journey to lead the stranded crew of his ship, the Endurance, to safety after a failed attempt to cross Antarctica in 1914. The journey has become the stuff of legend. Shackleton led his men in lifeboats across ice-clogged waters to South Georgia Island, where they then had to scale the island’s snow-capped mountains to reach the safety of a whaling station on the other side of the island.

The Lindsay Wildlife Alliance is an organization of volunteer women who support Lindsay Wildlife and have done so for 60 years. The Alliance was originally started by Barbara Lindsay, wife of founder Sandy Lindsay.

With strong dedication and support to Lindsay these women help raise money for Lindsay’s education and rehabilitation programs through annual spring brunch and speaker as well as a holiday boutique.
