Support our work

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

The pandemic has had a significant impact on our charity and we need your generosity now more than ever. By supporting our work you can help to conserve historic buildings and artefacts in Antarctica and contribute to the protection of its unique natural environment and wildlife. Every donation, monthly gift and membership enables us to continue our conservation programme and develop exciting, diverse cultural programmes here in the UK.

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

TV presenter Kate Humble has joined Sir Ranulph Fiennes, Alexandra Shackleton and Dafila Scott in a public Appeal to help us through the pandemic. Covid travel restrictions have severely impacted Polar tourism and our ability to run the post office and museum in Antarctica. The income normally raised from our gift shop, post office and donations from visitors is our single most important source of revenue, and we face a shortfall of up to £1m in the budget with serious consequences for our work.
