See the World With L&C Travel
This past January, a group of alumni, parents, and friends of Lewis & Clark traveled to Antarctica with President Wim Wiewel and Professor of Biology Ken Clifton. High- lights of the trip included crossing the Drake Passage; interacting with penguins on Brown Bluff island; and participating in lectures on climate change, biodiversity, and more with Professor Clifton. A few travelers even partook in a polar plunge!
If you are interested in visiting Antarctica, Lewis & Clark will be returning in January 2023. The trip will be led by Erica Lyman, clinical professor of law at Lewis & Clark Law School. Professor Lyman is director of the Global Law Alliance for Animals and the Environment—a col- laboration launched in the fall of 2020 between the Center for Animal Law Studies and the Environmental Law Program at the law school. The Global Law Alliance is a champion for wild animals and wild spaces across the globe, working to protect animals and the environment through the development, implementation, and enforcement of international law.

Inspired by their experience, the Antarctica travelers came together to generously donate a total of $118,000 in order to create an endowed annual student research award focused on conservation and the effects of climate change. The award will be administered through the John S. Rogers Science Program. Thank you to all the travelers for supporting our students in this meaningful way.
