In late 2013, Air New Zealand went on a quest to find one or more environmental enthusiasts able to share the magic of the Antarctic frozen continent with the rest of the world.

They found Australian student filmmaker Marli Lopez-Hope and Kiwi ‘outdoorsman’ Michael Armstrong. These two were selected from almost 2,000 applicants across 52 countries. They had the task of heading to Antarctica on assignment with Air New Zealand.

For two weeks in January 2014 they helped National Geographic photographer Jason Edwards capture life on the icy continent and helped draw worldwide attention to scientific research and the environment in Antarctica.

In the video, you can see Marli and Michaels' journey to Antarctica. It's amazing to see how they got there and learn how their research is helping us understand more about climate change. It's all about finding new ways to help preserve our planet for future generations to come.

Air New Zealand has proven to be one of the top airlines in the world for decades, now they are giving back for the benefit of everyone in the world that cares about our climate and environment.
