THE ANTARCTIC WILDLIFE RESEARCH FUND
FACILITATING AND PROMOTING RESEARCH ON THE ANTARCTIC ECOSYSTEM
The Antarctic Wildlife Research Fund facilitates and promotes research on the Antarctic ecosystem. It was created to ensure a resilient Antarctica, in which the management of all natural resources must rely on precaution and thorough and upto-date knowledge. The Antarctic ecosystem is uniquely dependent on Antarctic krill (Euphausia superba), a small, shrimp-like crustacean that is eaten by species from fish to blue whales. AWR believes now is a critical time to obtain high-quality scientific information that can help resolve current scientific uncertainties about krill, krill predators, and the ecosystem to assist in the long-term management of the fishery.
