Did you know that Australia was instrumental in the creation of the Antarctic Treaty in 1959? That’s right and in 1989 Australia and France led a mighty diplomatic feat that resulted in a mining ban in the Antarctic.
We have done so much to protect this special part of the world.
Right now, Australia is taking the next step in our Antarctic legacy by leading the charge for an East Antarctic Marine Park. Join Aussie Antarctic explorer Tim Jarvis in our Facebook livestream and learn more about our Antarctic legacy and how you can help protect it.
Link to livestream will be available on the day.
