Preserve, Discover and Film

The ARCTIC EXPLORATION FUND is a public non-profit organization created to implement a consistent, high quality photograph presence in the Arctic, dedicated to capturing new behaviors on film as the Arctic's top marine predators adapt to a new and warming environment in the current era of climate change. Sometimes accompanying cutting-edge Arctic scientists, and sometimes acting independently, Arctic Exploration Fund will take calculated risks to photographically pursue the most fascinating mysteries left in the North in one of the most hostile regions on earth.

In doing so, AEF will produce documents that will be accessible to the public (via television, internet, lectures, and big screen presentations), lend insight to compelling scientific questions, and create a photographic time capsule that compiles the amazing adaptations and drama of animals reacting to an era of climate change for generations to view.
