Australians now have the unique opportunity to contribute to the nation's scientific endeavours on the icy continent and surrounding ocean with the Minister for the Environment, the Hon. Josh Frydenberg MP, launching the Antarctic Science Foundation today.

Driving new public-private partnerships, the Foundation is set to further advance Australia's Antarctic research and protection efforts.
