Caption: Antarctic penguin research. British Royal Navy surgeon and zoologist George Murray Levick (1876-1956) skinning a penguin on the Terra Nova on 28 December 1910 during the British Antarctic Expedition (1910-1913). Also known as the Terra Nova Expedition, the primary expedition objectives were scientific. Led by Robert Falcon Scott, the shore party of 34 (including Levick) landed in January 1911 and spent two seasons exploring on and around the Ross Ice Shelf. Scott and four others died in 1912 returning from the South Pole. Levick later published 'Antarctic Penguins: a study of their social habits' (1914). Photograph by Herbert George Ponting.
