Abstract Considers different approaches to conservation of historic huts in Antarctica, with particular reference to 2007 survey of eight British huts on Antarctic Peninsula. Discusses need for more consistent approach to selection of sites for designation; consideration of long-term management and funding requirements; and possible need for intermediate category to allow buildings currently not in use to be maintained in reasonable structural and environmental order.
