By Krystyna Saunders:

As part of the CIBE expedition, I spent seven weeks on Campbell Island sampling 45 lakes, tarns and ponds all over the island. At each site we collected water and sediment samples. Back in the lab at the University of Bern, Switzerland, I analysed...

The 2010 Bicentennial Expedition is now a distant memory but one that will ever remain in the hearts and minds of those of us who had the...

It’s a proud day when a scientist has a discovery named after her. In the field of invertebrates the chance of finding a new species is certainly greater than say working in the field of mammals, but even so, it is a rare privilege and one thing on my bucket list that I didn't think I would ever tick off.  In my case, my surname (McMurtrie) is being shared with a tiny worm (...

Artists Ben Reid and Annabel Menzies-Joyce came down to Campbell Island during our mid-term resupply. They were there to experience the island through different eyes to the researchers and to interact with the research teams to understand the work that the expedition was doing. Out of this they would be able to tell the story of Campbell Island and its recovery from two centuries of human influence in a different way to that of the research outputs. Ben and Annabel have both achieved a...

It’s been a long time coming but, I have finally produced work in response to my time spent on Campbell Island. I have succeeded in completing 12 new original prints in time for the first show on the 27th of February in Wellington.

Making the commitment to hold five exhibitions to show my prints eight months out, with none of the printing done and with only some loose ideas of what I’m going to do and how...

After 44 years reading the weather, and seven years combined time on Campbell Island (the longest combined time on the island) manning New Zealand's most southern meteorological station, it is time for Mark to hang up the thermometer.

Mark was a key support personnel on the Campbell Island expedition - downloading and interpreting weather maps every night so that we knew what kind of weather was in store for us on the following days. Without Marks interpretation we would not...

THE 2007 SURVEY

We arrived on New Year’s Eve 2006 and tramped to the site with guidance from Department of Conservation officer, Matt Charteris.

We found the beam on the west side of the stream from Six Foot Lake (see first image). A few rods and a small amount of timber were all that we could see of the beam (see second image). Then Matt found a plank of similar age on the east side of the stream.

1972: Sixty years after the whalers, in January 1972, a weather station technician, Chris Glasson, tramped to a bay somewhere on Campbell Island’s southern coast.  Here Chris saw a large timber beam with iron spikes sticking out of the peat.  

It had been unearthed by wallowing elephant seals and Chris thought that the iron spikes protruding from the beam had discouraged the monsters from dislodging and...

EARLY EVIDENCE

1874: Among several Campbell Island wreck reports of the 1800s, is the following from the December 1874 edition of Nature translated from the French, being part of an account by a French Expedition to Witness the Transit of Venus on Campbell Island that year [iii].

Where was this supposedly metaphorical middle of Campbell Island?
