Hong Kong photographer on diving expedition the Antarctic

The Standard are reporting that Elizabeth Quat will become the first woman from Hong Kong to be involved in a diving expedition to the Antarctic for research purposes. The article isn’t actually clear on whether she will actually be diving there, or whether she is the first Hong Kong woman on a diving expedition there or just the first on a diving expedition “for research”. All in all they don’t give us much news to go on, although their photo does show some diving gear and a camera housing.

She will apparently be a photographer as part of Project Elysium which will “document the vista, flora and fauna of the Antarctic Peninsula”. This is done with a view to raise awareness of climate change. It should be a great trip, so good luck to MsĀ  Quat. Hopefully we’ll have some great photos to show later.

You can read the article on the Standard website, from where the photo above came.
