The word 'indigenous' is used a lot these days, especially in terms of territorial rights to land and of invasive species of flora and fauna.

Antarctica, terra nullius--nobody's land, has long been a place apart, once explored only by intrepid and resourceful individuals willing to risk failure and death. Peter Neill, host of World Ocean Radio, will be in Antarctica next week aboard MS Island Sky with scientists from Woods Hole and a film crew from BBC-ONE, sharing insights and knowledge with other citizen scientists aboard, all wanting to experience and document the world's last wilderness. This upcoming trip has him thinking about the changing landscape and asking, "What are the real threats to the Antarctic?" and "Are changes to the planet hurtling us and these last wild places toward accelerated, irreversible change?"

We have long enjoyed the ocean edge for leisurely ends: as a place to gather with family and friends to enjoy surf and sand, and to relax in the freedom and solace that being near the ocean provides.

The Leisure Edge is part 4 of a 7-part series dedicated to the ocean edge, exploring what takes place there, from the real to the symbolic.
