Brevard’s White Squirrels became so famous in 1986 that the Brevard City Council unanimously voted for an ordinance that established a sanctuary for all squirrels. There are other towns that lay claim to having white squirrels however, unlike some of these squirrels Brevard’s White Squirrels are not albinos squirrels, but a variant of the Eastern Grey Squirrel (27% of Brevard’s squirrels are white squirrels).

On January 19, 2012, our approach to the frozen Continent (Antarctica) was made through the English Strait which is a body of water with heavy tidal currents and reefs. After an amazing morning we went ashore for the first time on Half Moon Island.
