Current Projects

We support a range of projects and activities which further our organisational aims: 

  • Preserving and enhancing the unique physical heritage of human endeavour in Antarctica to the highest standards, in the UK, in Antarctica and beyond.  
  • Inspiring people to pursue a lifelong engagement with the legacy of the pioneers of British Antarctic science and exploration. 

All our grants are funded through income generated from donations, legacies, the support of visitors to Port Lockroy and the ‘Friends of Antarctica’.
