FAR FROM FROZEN - Antarctica & Us
The Otago Ice Mass Balance Site is an integral part of the Unlocking Curious Minds funded Far From Frozen project. This project is led by the Otago Museum. Its aim is to build on New Zealand's strong connection to, and passion for, Antarctic exploration and conservation to:
- Inspire young New Zealanders to follow their passion for science, exploration and curiosity;
- Engage whole families in the science of climate change; and
- Demonstrate the importance of Antarctica in driving Earth’s systems and their resultant impact on New Zealand's climate and sea-level.
