The pages are designed to tell you more about the UK’s many and varied interests and activities in the polar regions: from cooperating in international science in the Arctic, to governing the British Antarctic Territory, the UK’s largest Overseas Territory.
A stunning and varied part of the world, some of which is changing rapidly.
Foreign Office Minister Henry Bellingham said:
“The UK is rightly proud of its long and rich history of polar exploration and scientific discovery. Today the UK continues to make a positive contribution in the polar regions, for example through our world-class polar science programme. I hope you enjoy learning more about our work in these unique and important regions.”
