Help to protect and share the wonder of Antarctica and its heritage.

A gift to the UK Antarctic Heritage Trust is a gift to Antarctica. By supporting us, you can help conserve historic buildings and artefacts in Antarctica and contribute to the protection of its unique natural environment and wildlife. Every donation and membership enables us to continue the conservation work and develop exciting community and cultural programmes to share Antarctica’s story.

With your help, we can preserve the past to protect the Antarctica of tomorrow.

Make a donation Protect Antarctica's heritage

Every donation we receive, no matter how small, helps our expert teams deliver vital conservation work across the heritage sites that we preserve. Without your support, sites of great importance in Antarctica's history could quickly deteriorate, taking with them historic artefacts, tales of scientific advancement and human endeavour that inform how we, as a global community, view and value Antarctica today. With your help, we can continue to conserve this special continent to ensure its protection for years to come.

Adopt A Penguin Follow a unique colony at the end of the world

The gentoos of Port Lockroy are perhaps some of the most famous penguins in the world! The colony made their home with us on Goudier Island over 30 years ago and we have been studying and contributing to their protection ever since. Inquisitive, fluffy and funny, we love sharing their activity with everyone around the world.
