FOUNDATION MAMONT was founded by Frederik Paulsen, an honorary polar researcher, a member of the famous “Arctic-2007” Russian scientific research expedition to the North Pole. By the late 2012, Frederick became the first person in the world to visit all eight magnetic poles.
Since 2013, FOUNDATION MAMONT has been involved in the development of the polar regions of our planet, sponsors the oceanic research and studies the climate change, as well as popularizes the knowledge and research in polar regions, which are so important for our planet.
Through its polar expeditions, the Foundation aims to share the amazing discoveries made in these regions, in order to show their importance for the climate system of our planet.
