Welcome to science week – Antarctic style!

Throughout the week our scientists will be sharing their insights into the icy continent across a range of events.

Today the Australian Antarctic Division’s Chief Scientist Dr Gwen Fenton will be at the Festival of Bright Ideas in Hobart to talk about the important research being undertaken in Antarctica.

The Director of the Division Dr Nick Gales will be on a panel discussing ‘Science and Whales’, with a focus on the International Court of Justice ruling on Japan’s whaling program, on Monday 14 August.

Krill will also be a key focus during Science Week. Join us @AusAntarctic on Thursday 17 August for a Facebook Live tour of our Antarctic Krill aquarium at 11:30am AEST!
