The impact of humans on Earth is rapidly changing our climate. Ice and glaciers tell the real story….with our help. Our fieldwork and global outreach programs require an annual budget of nearly $400,000.

Please support the Extreme Ice Survey at this momentous time in history, so we can keep the cameras running.
All donations are tax deductible.

With best regards and with much gratitude,

James Balog, Founder and Director Extreme Ice Survey
