    A rough day at work for most of us involves a broken coffee machine or an overtime meeting. But for Joey McQuade, a rough day is being rammed by 8000-tonne factory ships while chasing illegal whaling fleets across the high seas. The 22 year-old has worked on three campaigns for marine conservation organisation Sea Shepherd, and each time he’s been trusted with their most powerful tool: a camera. “It’s important to document what’s happening in the waters down in Antarctica because not a lot of people go there,” Joey says. “The footage we can capture has really brought light to the issues with illegal whaling and poaching.”

        December 2012 --- Sir Ernest Shackleton's Trans-Antarctic Expedition is one of the greatest survival stories in history and has inspired adventurers across every continent over three generations. In honour of Shackleton's legendary expedition, a crew of five British and Australian adventurers will join expedition leader Tim Jarvis, AM FRGS, in an attempt to become the first to authentically re-enact Shackleton's complete 'double' voyage from Elephant Island to South Georgia and dangerous crossing of its mountainous interior.

          • Retracing Shackleton's Epic Journey of Survival -- Tim Jarvis


            from Ramona Dalton Added 10 1 0

            This film tells the story of the expedition led by Tim Jarvis to authentically recreate the perilous journey of survival that Sir Ernest Shackleton had to take in 1916 when his polar expedition was thwarted after his boat was trapped in the ice. Tim Jarvis and his team of 5 sailed the 800 nautical miles from Elephant Island to South Georgia in a replica of Shackleton's keel-less whaling boat and then climbed for three days over the dangerous mountains using the same inadequate equipment that Shackleton and his men had to use. The film footage and photographs contained within this film were provided by The Shackleton Epic team and remain the copyright of the respective copyright holders. The interviews with Tim Jarvis were produced and edited by Ben Richardson and filmed by Adam Thorpe, Chris Wanklyn and Kelsey Eichhorn.

            • Tim Jarvis, motivation


              from Ramona Dalton Added 8 0 0

              Working with a team & lacking motivation? How about working with one another in a boat the size of a queen sized bed? Tim Jarvis, expedition leader of the Shackleton Epic, speaks about challenges of team work and motivation, taking examples from this larger than life adventure. In 2013 The Shackleton Epic expedition was the first authentic retracing of polar explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton’s “double” - sailing a replica James Caird life boat 1500 kilometres across the Southern Ocean from Elephant Island, Antarctica, to South Georgia before climbing over its mountainous interior using the same rudimentary equipment, period clothing, and technology as Shackleton. Regarded by many as the greatest survival journey of all time, this is the first time since Shackleton that anybody has been able to authentically recreate it.
