So, we all made it to 2017. I hope 2017 will be a great year for all of you, in good health and one where you’ll make a lot of good, new memories. Take a lot of pictures, but don’t forget to enjoy the moment as well. And if the opportunity arises, grab it, go live your dream!

For me 2017 will start with two trips to the new MPA: the Ross Sea. Super excited and hope to share the story with all of you.

Have a good year!!

  • Happy new year for you Arjen!
    What a way to start a new year. Say hello to the penguins for me please 🙂


    • Well, at the moment that’s quite difficult as I’m in the Netherlands… But I’ll try to remember in 10 days when I head back south. But all the best for you as well. Enjoy!!

      • Please wave when you come across the camera poles of the Penguinwatch at Zooniverse then we can wave back at our displays about a year later 🙂

        Wish you a great trip!


      • I’m tall and have a red jacket with “staff” on my arm… but I don’t think I’ll be in an area with penguin watch cams soon. Will head to the Ross Sea first 😆

      • Please make sure not to forget your camera. Your pictures are always great to look at.


      • I’m already looking forward to seeing the pictures.
        It’s second best to go myself but that’s not possible right now. And your photos are great.
