Securing Antarctica’s Environmental Future

Monash-led program Securing Antarctica’s Environmental Future (SAEF) was named the recipient of $36 million funding under the ARC Special Research Initiative for Excellence in Antarctic Science in April 2020. SAEF will deliver world-leading research to forecast environmental change across the Antarctic, deploy effective environmental stewardship strategies, and secure Antarctica as a natural reserve devoted to peace and science.

SAEF is a joint program with five other Australian universities, the WA Museum and SA Museum, with government agencies, including the Australian Antarctic Division, Geoscience Australia, Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation, and the Bureau of Meteorology. The program commences 2021.
