Antarctica 100

In the last 100 years Antarctica has grown in world importance from the last great unknown wilderness to the largest science laboratory in the world. Much of this impressive development can be traced back to the exploits of those heroic leaders of expeditions to the continent.

Antarctica 100 is a network of organisations within Britain with any sort of polar heritage interest. As well as working together on mutual information exchange, collectively they aim to generate wider public interest in the achievements of past polar endeavours especially during the centenary of the heroic age 2001 - 2017.
