Antarctica - the world's last great wilderness A warming climate and an ever-expanding commercial fishing industry are threatening Antarctica and its iconic creatures. Tue May 22 Antarctica is the last great wilderness. The vast continent - nearly twice the size of Australia - and its surrounding seas, are shaped by cold and wind, ice and snow. The book describes the physical environment and wildlife of Antarctica and the subantarctic, the 'heroic' and modern era of Australia's exploration of the continent.

It is arguably the world’s last great wilderness, providing travelers with a unique opportunity to experience genuine pristine wildness. And it is arguably threatened due to climate change, providing an urgent mission.   Though hostile it is acknowledged as the world's last great wilderness and has fascinated scientists, photographers and geologists alike for many years. This book contains some of the most sensational photos of snowy landscapes, frozen bays, floes - of the severe and rough Antarctica.5/5(2).
