Support Our Work

The Antarctic Heritage Trust’s mission is to ensure the expedition bases and the thousands of related artefacts survive for the benefit of current and future generations and to inspire people through the values associated with adventure, discovery and endurance.

The Antarctic Heritage Trust is a charitable trust and receives core funding for administration costs from the New Zealand Government through the Ministry for Culture and Heritage (MCH) and from commercial sponsors.

In order to achieve the aims of the Ross Sea Heritage Restoration Project, the Trust relies on valuable support from trusts and foundations and individual supporters. Our core funding ensures that every dollar raised goes directly to the project.

As a supporter of the Trust you will help us fulfill our mission and ensure the heroic era bases are conserved for current and future generations.

"We owe it to future generations to protect this important part of world heritage. I earnestly hope you are numbered amongst them."
