Operation Deep Storm: New Zealand Antarctic Veterans Association

This website is a way for New Zealand veterans to get recognition for their service in the Antarctic. Visitors won't want to miss the website's "Image Library" of photos categorized by decade, ships, wildlife, and a miscellaneous heading. The "Seals" subcategory under wildlife shows two adorable pictures of a Weddell seal pup, along with several pictures of different types of penguins, under the subcategory of that same name. The "Antarctic Timeline" is especially helpful to those visitors who are unfamiliar with the exploration of the Antarctic. It starts at 200 million years B.C., and goes up to September of 2009. Some of the entries are quite intriguing, and the highlights include listings of babies born in Antarctica, the establishment of scenic flights over the continent, and the abnormal melting and movement of glaciers. The site is rounded out by a tribute to the late Sir Edmund Hillary, who was a patron of the Association.
