SUPPORT long term monitoring and research that will uncover their history, help us understand how these systems function, and assist with island management.
ENSURE RESEARCH CONTINUITY by nurturing exchange and collaboration between emerging scientists and established experts.
RAISE THE PROFILE of the Subantarctic islands by engaging the public with this remote World Heritage region.
