Degree LevelPostgraduate Certificate
Degree NamePostgraduate Certificate in Antarctic Studies
Antarctic Tourism has increased significantly over the past fifty years, as has global tourism. This review sets out to consider how this increase in tourist numbers, which appears to be inevitable, is impacting on Antarctica. Is the current legislation sufficient for management of the negative impacts of tourism? If not, what is being suggested as a possible way to mitigate these impacts? Tourism has positive impacts as well, and the future for Antarctica appears to be finding a way forward by recognizing the value tourists bring and balancing this alongside manageable regulations to mitigate the negative impacts.
