The Cheeseman's expedition staff that were on board the Ortelius with us included:

We also had two researchers from Oceanites, Inc., Maureen (Mo) Lynch and Catie Foley. Oceanites is a nonprofit, science and educational foundation, which intends to foster the conservation of the world's oceans, islands, and their wildlife, as well as a better appreciation of the sensitive connections we humans have to our watery globe. At our landing sites we would drop Catie and Mo off to count penguins and they would share their findings and knowledge with us during lectures.
