    Jana Stefan speaks of the Antarctic Heritage Trust, how and why it came to be and its importance to the conservation of Antarctic heritage and history. "At the turn of the twentieth century Antarctica was the focus of one of the last great races of exploration and discovery. The heroic era of Antarctic exploration (1895 – 1917) gave us Sir Ernest Shackleton and Captain Robert Falcon Scott, names now synonymous with Antarctic adventure and the values of discovery, adventure and endurance. Four expedition parties built bases in the Ross Sea Region of Antarctica. The bases still stand in Antarctica today and are cared for, on behalf of the international community, by the Antarctic Heritage Trust. The Trust, based in New Zealand, is engaged in a long-term cold conservation project to protect the explorers' legacy; the bases and the artefacts they left behind, for current and future generations" http://www.nzaht.org/
