Westarctica is the ONLY nonprofit organization in the world dedicated entirely to Western Antarctica.
Western Antarctica is one of the most fragile ecosystems on the planet, yet there is no single organization dedicated to studying and preserving this vast, magnificent, desolate region. It falls under the political dominion of no government, thus Western Antarctica has no voice in the international community.
Westarctica seeks to change that by acting as Western Antarctica's advocate to the world. In line with our mission, we have established ourselves as an independent nation with self-granted sovereignty, free from restrictions or obligations imposed by other countries.
Since 2014, Westarctica has been registered as a nonprofit corporation and in 2018, we achieved 501(c)(3) Tax Exempt status. For more information on our charitable work to fight climate change, please visit: www.westarctica.org
