How can we stop people spoiling the Antarctic?

There are now very good systems set up to stop people spoiling the Antarctic. Everything we do there is carefully controlled to have minimum impact on the wildlife and area. Part of my work is to look at the effect we are having on the breeding penguins and from this work I will be able to make recommendations that will help the wildlife. I would say that everyone who goes there loves the place and wants to keep it as it is.
