DREAMING BIG: ECU conservation director preserves artifacts in Antarctica

(Jan. 9, 2013)   —   An East Carolina University faculty member has had a once-in-a-lifetime experience – again.  

Susanne Grieve, director of conservation at ECU, lived and worked in Antarctica for eight months in 2012 through the Antarctic Heritage Trust, a non-profit organization based in New Zealand. The trust is responsible for the preservation of four expedition bases on Antarctica that were funded by the British Antarctic Society.
