When moulting, penguins aren’t able to feed at sea so live off their fat reserves – this makes them particularly sensitive to disturbance, so human visitors give them a wide berth.

High glaciers surround the seemingly peaceful Neko Harbour, set within the larger Andvord Harbour on the Antarctic Peninsula. But don’t be fooled, teeming with wildlife, the calls of Gentoo penguins, kelp gulls and skuas fill the air. ©Seba Lescano

IAATO members commit to making sure that any visitor facilities in Antarctica can be removed at the end of the summer season. Just another way we ensure that Antarctica remains pristine and protected. ©Mariam Ktiri #weareiaato #responsibletravel #peaceandscience
