Securing Antarctica’s Environmental Future

Monash-led program, Securing Antarctica’s Environmental Future (SAEF), is an Antarctic research program, funded by the Australian Research Council as a Special Research Initiative. Established in 2021, its mission is to understand the changes taking place across the Antarctic region – to its climate and its biodiversity – and develop innovative ways to forecast, mitigate and manage these changes. SAEF also seeks to collaborate with policymakers to identify conservation priorities and help make the right decisions for Antarctica’s future. The initiative is funded for seven years, to ambitiously push to protect the future of Antarctica, and the planet.
