Our mission

Our mission is to bring the awe of Antarctica into homes around the world, and inspire people to learn more about this incredible continent.

Antarctica may seem far away, but it plays a critical role in regulating the global climate and sea levels. What happens in Antarctica affects every one of us.

We want to help people understand and appreciate Antarctica, and use this platform to support meaningful Antarctic research and conservation work.

Born in the mountains

The Antarctic Shop was started by an Antarctic guide and conservationist isolating in the mountains during the COVID-19 pandemic.

As travel slowed to a glacial pace and Antarctica became temporarily off-limits, they were keen to find ways to connect with Antarctica-lovers and keep talking about all things Antarctica. The Antarctic Shop was born.

The real Antarctica

All designs are drawn from original photos taken on Antarctic and subantarctic expeditions.

All products are made and delivered by Redbubble, an Aussie company that prints and ships from all around the world.

Giving back

The Antarctic Shop donates at least 10% of what we receive from every sale to ongoing Antarctic and penguin conservation and advocacy work done by Penguins International and the Antarctic and Southern Ocean Coalition.
