Ready to get trained and a little cold. Well, if you are up for it, Airbnb is offering a handful of people a chance to participate in scientific research all-expense paid to the one and only Antartica.
Attendees will stay in Airbnb’s in Chile for their training for about two weeks and will stay at a camp provided by Antarctic Logistics & Expeditions in Antarctica. Airbnb will partner with Ocean Conservancy to use the research for advocacy.
You can take your shot at it here.

Saying Antarctica is “off the beaten path” is a bit of an understatement. As the most isolated continent on Earth, it has no permanent residents. But Antarctica is a hub for conducting research on how humans affect the planet, which is why environmental scientist Kirstie Jones-Williams is heading there. And she wants 5 volunteers to join her for a month-long, first-of-its kind scientific study. While there, you'll investigate the presence of microplastics in the interior of the continent, in partnership with @OceanConservancy. While this may not be for the faint of heart, this is your chance to make a major impact on how we interact with our planet. Visit the link in our bio now so you can be part of Kirstie’s team. Apply by 11:59pm EDT on October 8, 2019, terms apply.
