The current environmental situation and proposals for the management of the Fildes Peninsula Region


The Fildes Peninsula and neighbouring Ardley Island are part of the largest ice-free areas in the maritime Antarctic region. This region is characterised by its comparatively high biodiversity. At the same time, this area is home to the highest density of scientific stations used all year round in the whole of the Antarctic. Diverse activities in the fields of research and logistics, but also tourism, are putting a considerable strain on the area and are leading to a conflict of interests between the various user groups and the nature conservation and environmental protection measures according to international law (cf. Protocol on Environmental Protection to the Antarctic Treaty).
