The Trust operates in the British Antarctic Territory on the Antarctic Peninsula. Besides its flagship Port Lockroy the Trust has taken on the conservation management of five other historic sites: Damoy, Detaille, Horseshoe, Stonington, and Wordie.
Deception Island, as an ASPA (Antarctic Specially Protected Area) managed by several nations is more complicated but the Trust is supportive on any potential heritage conservation plans.

Thanks to our other Peninsula sponsors.
