WINGS Flag #23

The team are delighted to be carrying WINGS Worldquest Flag number 23.

This flag has already been carried to Antarctica, so we are honoured to be taking it with us to the polar region at the other extremity of the globe. Before carrying the flag to the North Pole, it seemed only fitting that it accompany us to both the Middle East and Europe. So here we are on our training expedition in Oman, proudly flying the flag in the desert for women explorers and scientists around the world, past and future.

Wings Worldquest is a US-based organisation that recognises and supports extraordinary women in science and exploration. Through its Fellows and Flag Carrier programs, WINGS creates community and showcases the groundbreaking work of women scientists and explorers, whose discoveries advance scientific inquiry, stimulate conservation, and lead to better understanding of our world. Felicity was inducted as a Wings Fellow in 2014 as a recipient of the WINGS Women of Discovery Courage Award.
