ICTAR aims to provide the science that will underpin the conservation, protection, and management of terrestrial ecosystems of the Ross Sea region. Its innovative, integrated, and interdisciplinary approach is to design new methods to elucidate the status of the present biodiversity, and to predict the effects of multiple impacts on ecosystems. It draws on research talent from the University of Waikato's faculties of Science & Engineering and Arts & Social Sciences, and includes colleagues from the Gateway Antarctica at Canterbury, researchers from Auckland and Otago, and from eight countries -- Spain, UK, USA, South Africa, Australia, Germany, China, Austria.

Our mission is to promote the protection of Antarctica through integrated international research into Antarctic terrestrial ecosystems assuring New Zealand’s continued leadership in this area.
