The impact of tourism on the Antarctic environment



The impact of tourism on the Antarctic environment



Environment International 13(1): 133-136



Tourism is well established in the Antarctic. Its impact is at present limited; the number of tourists is small and unlikely to increase much in the near future. Most tourists come by sea. There are two types of cruise: natural history cruises, mostly in small vessels, and more traditional entertainment cruises in larger passenger ships. Small numbers of private expeditions, mostly in yachts, visit the Antarctic. Official guests of research stations may arrive by supply ship or by air.
