The Antarctic Science Foundation celebrates its first birthday today on World Environment Day.  

The international charity is working with the Australian Antarctic Division and global science community to build partnerships with the private sector that support world class research in Antarctica and the Southern Ocean.

‘The great white continent is not just home to a wild, unique and vulnerable ecosystem which we need to understand and protect, it is also like the planet’s crystal ball’.  said Executive Director, Chrissie Trousselot.

‘Antarctica shows us our past and holds the data which can predict future climate and its global impact.  It is immensely important for future generations to understand the region.

Initiatives providing life-long recognition for donors, such as the Trailblazers10 Corporate Sponsorship and the 32/107 Founding Donors Club are focussed on attracting relationships with people who share the Foundation’s commitment to Antarctic research and want to join the organisation’s journey,’ she said.

The Foundation’s first Trailblazer10 is Lighthouse Road, a sustainability focussed, NSW based consulting company.  It’s owner, Shaun Deverson is in Hobart today to meet the team and learn more about the science which underpins future climate.

‘Antarctic and Southern Ocean research is relevant for my work advising businesses and government organisations on the measures they need to consider for the future to be sustainable, innovative and competitive. We learn a lot about our planet and how it’s changing from studying all elements of Antarctica from krill to ice-cores. 

I’m pleased to be the first Trailblazer for the Antarctic Science Foundation and am looking forward to joining them on a life long journey to support science and bring light to complex research questions’, said Mr Deverson.
