It’s here! The #AmbassadorshipChallenge is a 24-task downloadable card (or poster, if you like) designed to inspire polar enthusiasts to be Antarctic Ambassadors and make changes at home to support the world’s most precious place 🇦🇶

@OceanwideExp So saddened by this news. Our thoughts are with all who knew and love Arjen, a dedicated and enthusiastic Antarctic Ambassador.

@HeidiSevestre Antarctica receives relatively few visitors compared to other destinations but its unique qualities require rigorous safeguards. We work closely with #AntarcticTreaty parties to develop Site Guidelines for visitors & operational procedures which are regularly reviewed & enhanced.

@HeidiSevestre IAATO is not a permitting authority for #Antarctica. Our members work within the #AntarcticTreaty framework to deliver responsible operations there.

@HeidiSevestre Thanks for including us in this important conversation. All human activity in Antarctica must be authorised by a competent authority (ie #AntarcticTreaty Party) & is subject to an Environmental Impact Assessment before proceeding…

You could be a visitor, scientist, polar guide – or maybe you’ve just admired Antarctica from afar.
If one or more of these describes you, you’re an #antarcticambassador and we’d love to hear your story. Tell us about yourself: firstname.lastname@example.org 🇦🇶
