New Delhi, Sep 25 (IANS) Global travel company Airbnb and Ocean Conservancy have announced the Antarctic Sabbatical, an opportunity for five passionate individuals to travel to Earths most remote continent on a first-of-its-kind scientific research mission in December.

“The five volunteer citizen scientists will collect snow samples and study the extent to which micro plastics have made their way to the interior of Antarctica, one of the world’s least understood and most isolated ecosystems,” Airbnb said in a Tuesday statement.

The five selected individuals will join Antarctic scientist Kirstie Jones-Williams, to deliver insights on how the global community can help protect both Antarctica and the planet.
