The Antarctic Treaty - Main Points - 11 slides

1 - No Military Use - One of the most important parts of the Antarctic treaty is that it makes Antarctica a continent for peace only, it is the world's only demilitarized continent. There can be no military bases or structures of any kind, no military manoeuvres and no weapons testing.

Military personnel can be used or stationed in Antarctica for science or other peaceful reasons only.

Leave your machine guns, tanks, bombs and other warmongering paraphernalia at home,
you'll be breaking the terms of the Antarctic Treaty if you bring them.
