The world’s first E-Base was set up by revolutionary Robert Swan in the Antarctic. The only other E-Base in the world exists in the very middle of India in Pench, Madhya Pradesh. When the idea of the E- Base finally materialised at the Turia gate of the Pench Tiger Reserve, it opened its doors to all the surrounding village children. Unacquainted with the concept of an E-Base, the students wondered about why the E- Base existed and what it really stood for, most of all, why it was located in Antarctica.
Through this workshop, Chandini Chhabra familiarised the students with the first E-Base of the world in the Antarctic and took them through a little tour of this last remaining wilderness.
The students learnt about the harsh climate the animals of the Antarctic endure and how life goes on in this icy remote land.
