The End of Sir John Franklins Arctic Expedition, 1845 Featured Print

The End of Sir John Franklins Arctic Expedition, 1845

Engraving showing the end of Sir John Franklin's ill-fated Arctic expedition of 1845, entitled They Forged the last link with their lives'. This engraving was taken from a painting by W. Thomas Smith, exhibited in the Royal Academy in 1896. In 1845 the British Admiralty sent two polar exploration ships, HMS Erebus and HMS Terror, to look for the Northwest passage round the northern coast of Canada. The expedition, commanded by Sir John Franklin, disappeared from view late in 1845 and none of the men were ever seen again. In fact the ships made it to the King William Island region, then got stuck in the ice. With supplies running out the surviving crew abandoned ship and headed south. However, none made it to safety and it is all died from disease, exposure or starvation. This image shows the end of that desperate attempt to reach safety. From 1848 onwards a number of relief expeditions were sent to find Franklin, but it was only in 1859 that Francis Leopold McClintock was finally able to confirm Franklin's fate

Middle Caicos Conch Bar Caves Turks and Caicos Featured Print

Middle Caicos Conch Bar Caves Turks and Caicos

Conch Bar Caves is located in Conch Bar, a village on Middle Caicos. This park protects 15mi of underground caverns, one of the largest cave systems in the Caribbean region. Some have lagoons and stalactites and stalagmites and most have colonies of bats. This site consists of the Conch Bar Cave System itself and the above ground land that covers and surrounds it. The area includes Village Hill and several nearby ponds. It is a karst cave system with specialized cave fauna and flora including bats, crustaceans and isopods. The above ground area supports rare plant and animal populations. The caves have significant human history from the pre-Columbian past to the recent colonial times. Hidden within the system of caves are underground lakes, and Lucayan Indian artifacts protected by the stalactites and stalagmites that jut from the ceiling and the ground. A colony of bats may make their home with the caves, but they are known to be harmless
