Welcome to ICTAR!

The International Centre for Terrestrial Antarctic Research (ICTAR) is  based at the University of Waikato, New Zealand dedicated to understanding the Antarctic terrestrial environment.  ICTAR aims to bring science to you the public so if you have anything you would like to know, if you would like to arrange a public talk within the Hamilton area please contact us.


From microbiology on volcanic Mt Erebus, to fungi in the historic huts of Ross Island, find out all about ICTAR’s projects.
