WP012: Human Disturbance to Wildlife in the Broader Antarctic Region: A Review of Findings

Summary:

This paper is in response to a discussion at ATCM XXX about the basis for the 5 m separation distance from fauna recommended in the Site Guidelines for frequently visited tourist sites. The CEP requested SCAR to provide a report on the current state of knowledge with respect to human disturbance of wildlife. A review of the available scientific research on direct human disturbance to wildlife was commissioned by SCAR (Appendix I), which forms the basis for this paper.
