Creating a greener and more sustainable world starts with the youth


Matrics in Antarctica is an adventure like no other. Five South African students from across the country will be given a once in a lifetime experience of travelling to Antarctica to learn more about sustainability, the diverse ecosystem and conservation.


This epic adventure was founded by pioneering explorer Riaan Manser. His passion for the environment, outdoors and conservation is propelling him to share this experience with the youth and to educate them on the importance of preserving this beautiful planet.


If you have a passion for adventure and conservation and want to explore the beauty that lies in Earth's southernmost continent, then this is for you.
