Securing Antarctica’s Environmental Future (SAEF)

SAEF logo

SAEF is an Antarctic research program, funded by the Australian Research Council as a Special Research Initiative. Established in 2021, our 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. We also seek to collaborate with policymakers to identify conservation priorities and help make the right decisions for Antarctica’s future. We’re funded for seven years, and no matter what happens we’ll be ambitiously pushing to protect the future of Antarctica, and the planet.
