Caption: Antarctic penguin hunt. Expedition members in a rowing boat hunting penguins in pack ice in December 1910 during the British Antarctic Expedition (1910-1913). Also known as the Terra Nova Expedition after the ship that brought them to Antarctica, the primary expedition objectives were scientific. Penguins were hunted both for food and as specimens. Led by Robert Falcon Scott, the shore party of 34 landed at Cape Evans in January 1911. They spent two seasons exploring on and around the Ross Ice Shelf. Scott and four others died in 1912 returning from their attempt to be the first to reach the South Pole. Photograph by Herbert George Ponting.
