In a message broadcast from the Marambio Base in Antarctica, Argentine President Alberto Fernández Wednesday underlined his country's 119th year of uninterrupted presence in the so-called White Continent. Here, at the end of the world, one can assume the dimension of the Homeland, said Fernández during the Antarctica Day celebrations.
”December first, Antarctica Day, we are marking the 60th Anniversary of the Antarctic Treaty coming into effect. This year is also the 30th anniversary of the Environmental Protocol; the framework under the Antarctic Treaty which protects Antarctica from environmentally detrimental activity,” the UK Antarctic Heritage Trust celebrated yesterday. Camilla Nichol, the Chief Executive of the foundation, called to celebrate with colleagues across the Polar community and beyond the UK.
