Edu­ca­tion for Antarc­tic Conservation

Roy­al Geo­graph­i­cal Soci­ety (with IBG)

School pupils can­not vis­it Antarc­ti­ca. The Roy­al Geo­graph­ic Society’s ambi­tious edu­ca­tion­al pro­gramme brings Antarc­ti­ca into their reach through the use of social media and dig­i­tal resources, online data sources and sci­en­tif­ic research. 

The project builds on the expe­ri­ence of the Wed­dell Sea Expe­di­tion edu­ca­tion pro­gramme and utilis­es mate­ri­als and resources col­lect­ed dur­ing the expe­di­tion and the per­son­nel on board, to edu­cate the stu­dents about the Antarc­tic and its marine envi­ron­ment. Young peo­ple, from pri­ma­ry school age to 6th for­m­ers are encour­aged to explore how their actions and the actions of oth­ers can sup­port the pro­tec­tion and con­ser­va­tion of these unique ecosystems.
