THREE Malaysian youths — Helena Erin Dodge-Wan, Paul Koh Zhu Kwang and Faisal Ariff — will soon embark on the ‘coolest’ adventure of their lives.
The trio will be braving sub-zero temperatures as they represent Malaysia at the International Antarctic Expedition 2014 (IAE) following their victory in the PRU4Antarctica Contest, jointly organised by Prudential Assurance Malaysia Bhd (PAMB) and Prudential BSN Takaful Bhd (PruBSN).
Their 14-day journey will see them passing through Cape Horn, Drake Passage and the western coast of the Antarctic Peninsula, where they will learn what they can do to save Antarctica alongside some of the world’s most dynamic individuals.
The IAE was initiated by environmentalist Robert Swan in 2003 as part of his lifetime commitment to promote the conservation of the world’s last wilderness and protect it from human exploitation.
Swan holds the record for being the first person to have walked to both the North and South Poles.
The trio said going to Antarctica was a dream come true for them and an opportunity of a lifetime.
They look forward to sharing their insights on climate change and what they can do to preserve the environment once they return home.
