Dogs in Antarctica: Tales from the Pack
Stories about Antarctica usually focus on the heroic humans who explored the continent, but none of their feats could have been accomplished without the work and sacrifice of their sledge dogs.
These canine characters had tales of their own to tell. Learn about their exploits, what they ate and the equipment they used in Canterbury Museum’s exhibition Dogs in Antarctica: Tales from the Pack.
The exhibition features photographs and objects from the Museum’s significant Antarctic collections and video interviews Frank Graveson and Peter Cleary, one of the first and one of the last dog handlers at Scott Base.
Entry to Canterbury Museum is free; donations are appreciated.
