Mr. Kramer sailed on a Dutch training vessel and will discuss the duties of sea watches and other responsibilities of ship life required of all passengers. He will also include a brief discussion of the geological formation of Antarctica, as well as how climate change is impacting the penguins, seals, and whales.
