216 pages including references. Australia claims sovereignty over more than 40 percent of the southern continent and was instrumental in the creation in 1991 of the Madrid Protocol for comprehensive protection of the Antarctic environment. The development of a conservation strategy for the Australian Antarctic Territory is the logical next step in implementing the Protocol's objectives. The 1993 Fenner Conference on the Environment was an important step in the preparation of a conservation strategy for the Australian Antarctic Territory. Conference participants and various specialists considered broad issues critical to conservation and management of the Australian Antarctic Territory and the adjacent Southern Ocean. Towards a Conservation Strategy for the Australian Antarctic Territory reports on that conference. It provides the background needed for researchers, decision-makers and concerned people to work towards the protection of this unique wilderness.
