Antarctica has a profound effect on Earth’s climate and ocean systems, and with rising sea levels as well as the increasing importance of action on climate change, it is now a global imperative to ensure the ongoing protection of this continent. The Antarctic Science Foundation is an organisation bringing together people who believe in the value of Antarctica, to ensure longevity of the continent for future generations.
With the Antarctic Treaty expiring in just over 20 years and current global conflict, a question mark remains over the future of this remarkable place. In this episode, we explore projects led by the Foundation, the independent research currently being conducted, and how businesses can do more to ensure the future growth and protection of Antarctica.
