Take The Chair’s Challenge and double your impact in Antarctica 🇦🇶

Take The Chair’s Challenge !

New Chair to match gifts to Foundation until 30 June, 2022


Professor Tony Haymet, new Chair of The Antarctic Science Foundation, is emphatic: this is the most exciting time in the last 30 years to be involved in Antarctic science.


The Antarctic research community has recently been buoyed by:


• the arrival of RSV Nuyina, Australia’s new icebreaker;


• continued bipartisan support for Australian science in Antarctica and the Southern Ocean;


• renewed commitment to conduct field research in East Antarctica;


• the commencement of the Million Year Ice Core project; and


• the announcement of new research positions and additional resources for the Australian Antarctic Program.


The Antarctic Science Foundation is poised to build on this momentum. As a supporter, you are unique in your interest and commitment: you back the tenacious people and ambitious projects, providing the answers we need to flourish for generations to come.


Tony has made a personal commitment to match all gifts made to the Foundation before 30 June, 2022 *
