Seeing Scott Island, Antarctica


Seen by few; touched by fewer is Scott Island, Antarctica. Located in the Ross Sea, Scott Island is a small uninhabited island of volcanic origin. Photographed here  during Operation Zero Tolerance with Haggits Pillar, a 62-meter stack, Scott Island is part of the Ross Dependency and is claimed by New Zealand. Scott Island holds a special place with the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society; On the 12th of February, 2009, Andrew Perry and Molly Kendall, crew members of the MY Steve Irwin, were married on the island by Captain Paul Watson.
