The Wilkins Foundation exists to preserve and promote the achievements of Sir Hubert Wilkins. We do this by presenting talks, sourcing artefacts from across the world for digital preservation and promotion on this website.

The foundation also encourages and supports original research. Hubert Wilkins achievements and interests touched on many disciplines and there is much potential research to be done.

The development of television and film products to tell the world about Sir Hubert Wilkins is a major aim of the foundation.
