US Grant Awarded to Help Preserve Scott Hut

The US-based Getty Foundation has awarded a grant to the New Zealand Antarctic Heritage Trust. The $200,000 will go towards helping conserve the Scott Expedition Base. More specifically it will be used to install snow deflectors. This base was used by Scott on his last Antarctic expedition, which ended fatefully for him. The grant is being matched by an unnamed British foundation.
