Many IAATO operators encourage #Antarctic travellers to collect data through #citizenscience initiatives, usually as part of a collaborative project with professional scientists.

IAATO operators carry researchers in support of projects which aim to alert scientists to any environmental change and help them understand what is causing it. Policy makers, industry & other stakeholders can use this info to make decisions about managing human activity.

Long term monitoring projects are particularly important, especially in areas like the Antarctic Peninsula which is undergoing significant environmental change & where there is a lot of overlapping human activity in the form of research, fishing and tourism.

A Coordination Group, consisting of members of IAATO & The Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research (SCAR), with observers from Monash University, has been formed to help oversee the development of a #SystematicConservationPlan for the #Antarctic Peninsula.
02:01 - 25 of July 2021
SCAR, IAATO and project partners are utilising this approach to develop an SCP for the Antarctic Peninsula that will deliver quantifiable, evidence-based solutions for the simultaneous management of tourism, science and biodiversity in the region. 2/2
