New Zealand Antarctic Society Projects

Over the years the society has undertaken or contributed to a wide range of projects to ensure that New Zealand's Antarctic endeavours are not forgotten with time.

These include the:
  • Byrd Memorial on Mt Victoria, Wellington
  • placing of a headstone on Harry McNeish's grave in the Karori cemetery and
  • subsequent renovation of the headstone and the placing of a statue of Harry McNeish's cat 'Mrs Chippy' on the grave;
  • bulding of touring dispalys covering the early years of Scott Base and the Transantarctic Expedition;
  • most recently the collection of oral archives of New Zealander's involved in the first years of Scott Base.
  • creation of an electronic archive of all issues of our publication Antarctic, from 1956 to 2010.
