UKAHT ex-Trustee Keith Shackleton obituary

We are sad to report that our ex-Trustee and long-time supporter, artist Keith Shackleton, died on 17th April 2015.

Keith was one of the pioneers of Antarctic tourism along with Lars Eric Lindblad and Peter Scott. He was a very good friend of Peter Scott and David Attenborough. He was also a UKAHT Trustee and very good friend to UKAHT for many years. Keith was kind enough to donate a painting of Port Lockroy to the Trust, which is currently housed in the Scott Polar Research Institute. Limited edition prints were produced of the painting in order for it to raise funds for UKAHT. His print has proved very popular and become one of our iconic images of Port Lockroy.
