Welcome to the APECS SA site! We are a non-profit and voluntary organization, focused on improving communication between young polar researchers and available opportunities on local and international level, providing opportunity for skill development and transfer between young and established researchers, both locally and internationally, increasing exposure of young researchers to both local and international science practice and advancement, and creating  opportunities for inter-disciplinary networking and exposure for a sustainable approach to polar research. Our aim is to have a connected, informed, and growing community of young South African polar researchers and we hope to facilitate an active, competitive and sustainable presence on young researchers amongst the international polar research body.
