Footwear for the Antarctic
IMG 0781
In our zodiac, these are the ship-supplied footwear that we had to wear when going ashore or going for a zodiac ride. When embarking or disembarking the ship, it was mandatory to walk through a chemical-dip (with a scrub too!) with these boots to limit the risks of spreading harmful or alien species. Photo taken in Antarctica, December 2007.
