Planning new protected areas in a changing climate

Protected areas are the centrepiece of modern conservation management. Anthropocene effects on the Antarctic continent have highlighted the need for a modern network of protected areas to be established to secure its unique biodiversity. Working with the newest datasets on biodiversity, ecological proxies and future environmental change, this project seeks to assist the Antarctic Treaty Consultative Parties create a coordinated, continent-wide network of protected areas that will cope with coming environmental changes.
