Adventurer documents plight of the albatross

Hayley Shephard is the next speaker in the Royal B.C. Museum Quest lecture series

Adventurer, filmmaker and author Hayley Shephard is the next speaker in the Royal B.C. Museum Quest lecture series.

In 2010, Shephard was the first person to attempt a solo sea kayak journey around South Georgia Island, a Sub-Antarctic Island. Documented in her movie Soul of the Sea, her journey also served to raise awareness of the plight of the albatross.

Shephard’s lecture is held Thursday (July 18), from 7:30. to 9 p.m. at the Clifford Carl Hall located in the museum. Shephard will introduce her documentary film Soul of the Sea followed by a question and answer period and book signing.

This lecture is offered in conjunction with the current Royal B.C. Museum exhibition, Race to the End of the Earth, which chronicles the epic journeys of Norwegian explorer Roald Amundsen and Captain Robert Falcon Scott of the British Royal Navy as they risk everything on their quest to be the first to reach the South Pole.
