Antarctic Peninsula

The Antarctic Peninsula is the northernmost part of the mainland of Antarctica, and is fringed by islands. First sighted around 1820, this mountainous peninsula was visited by sealers, before several expeditions in the early 1900's unravelled its geography. Now it is dotted with numerous research stations and multiple claims of sovereignty. The northern extremity sees thousands of ship-borne tourists, as well as Hedgehog House photographers, every summer who marvel at the wildlife as well as the scenery. The peninsula is important because research has revealed that the forces of climate change are having a great effect on the region.
