SNOW HILL ISLAND, ANTARCTICA - UNDATED: Emperor penguins and chicks at a penguin "kindergarten" on Snow Hill Island in the Weddell Sea, Antarctica. Rocketing out of an icy ocean, huddling to keep their adorable chicks warm and sliding across the snow on their bellies, these are the iconic views of the much-loved emperor penguins. But for Antarctic this year may be the last time they can voyage deep into the region to watch the animals in their natural habitats and looking after their young. For several years the Kapitan Khlebnikov ship has been the only tourist-carrying vessel venturing to the penguin's habitat due to its special abilities as an "icebreaker'. Ships in the class have a super-strong hull, high power and a special shape that allows them to plunge through ice-covered waters without sinking. The "Khlebnikov" is a Russian icebreaker leased to the US-owned Quark Expeditions, who use the ultra-hardy boat to transport 100 lucky tourists every year to Snow Hill Island where they can view the new-born chicks being cared for by their attentive parents. But next year the lease ends and the boat will return to Russian hands for research purposes, meaning this month's 15-day voyage to the region on October 24 will sadly be the last. There are no other icebreakers currently travelling there and the expensive ships are rare.
