He Grew Up in Antarctica — And Now He’s Leaving | National Geographic ctm magazine

Dion Poncet came of age in a place almost no one calls home. He was born on a sailboat in Leith Harbour, an abandoned whaling station on South Georgia island. His father, a French adventurer, had met his mother, an Australian zoologist, on a jetty in Tasmania while sailing his boat around the world. The couple started a family in the South Atlantic. For years they traversed the west coast of the Antarctic Peninsula, surveying wildlife in uncharted bays—seals, flowering plants, seabirds—with three boys in tow. Dion was the first.

    Dion Poncet wants people to understand that what happens to Antarctica can have a significant impact on the rest of the world. What are your thoughts on his story?

    I thought this kind of person only available on movies

  • Paul McMullan on November 1, 2019

    Asian cultures believe that if a resource is available to them, then they will take it; no matter what. They don't like sharing.

  • Linda Davies on November 1, 2019

    A profound tragedy.
    Greetings from South Africa 🇿🇦

    I did not know all this commercial fishing is allowed. That doesn’t make sense. A bit of a sad story. Wish him well!

  • Benjamin Mcelwee on November 1, 2019

    No. Don’t leave babe.

  • Jeanne Lyn Montero on November 1, 2019

    I think a lot of people have given up and accepted what’s happening so they don’t even try to reduce their carbon footprints.

  • T L on November 2, 2019

    Sad story indeed of our world. Our world has grown from bad to worse. Greed has over taken people. Only Heaven can save us now.

  • Amit kumar on November 2, 2019

    But climate change is a propaganda, right?

  • Ryan Rodrigues on November 2, 2019

    How is he going to survive in the hot climate?

  • When you are viewing I'm so sorry that I wasn't there!

    Simmer down y’all the earth will be fine

  • Walter White on November 3, 2019

    More than helping other people we need to help our planet, our oceans, our animals, our fishes. It's ironic that we hear Govt allowing to kill bears, wolves, deers and many more as part of population control, come one nobody is talking about human population control. We guys are on their lands they are not on ours. Its was never been only humans land, it's always been shared place for millions of species. Only thing can help this planet is to control our greed, population and our emotions to reach out to far remote places to destroy native organisms. Otherwise End is near.

    He sounds like one of the GoT characters

  • antje tautkus on November 3, 2019

    Fake news

  • Janilton on November 5, 2019

    Amazing history, interesting

  • Giffy on November 6, 2019

    I find it hard to believe Antarctica is AS IMPORTANT as the Rainforest.

  • Giffy on November 6, 2019

    I wonder if he's ever been to the great Antarctic city of Neuschwabenland?

    "Generally, people won't be able to change their habits unless there's a direct effect on their day-to-day life" — poverty and the eventual doom of humanity

  • Mike Me on November 10, 2019

    Antartica use to have no ice at all 70% of the history of our planet. Climat is cyclic, get use to it… Now does he mean polution and tourism is changing that bay? The info is far from clear in that video ! For sure corporations will abuse the fishing…

  • Aliah Beltre on December 20, 2019

    If he lives in Antártica then would he be a citizen and what would be the official name (for example being American, Dominican, Cuban, puertorican )

  • Ak47 on December 29, 2019

    we owe world nothing

    I wanted to see his reaction to cities and land

  • Yuyao Chen on March 15, 2020

    I don’t know why but I just started crying when I saw the sea seals…
