– Antarctica is the world’s largest and most pristine wilderness, covering
an area of nearly 14 million square kilometers. Activities in the region
are regulated by the Antarctic Treaty of 1961, which applies to the area south
of 60 degrees south latitude, including all islands and ice shelves. The
Protocol on Environmental Protection to the Antarctic Treaty, ratified in
1998, designates Antarctica as “a natural reserve devoted to peace and science”,
and provides for the comprehensive protection of the Antarctic environment.
