Environmental Improvement

Numerous clean-up projects primarily in remote mountain ranges continue to be sponsored by the Foundation.

We remain dedicated to this mission. We also believe that this mission needs a more central role in Antarctic projects that receive foundation grants. A major goal of the Foundation is to encourage development and application of renewable energy sources to provide the power for future field work, to the point that no fossil fuels are used at base camps.
