The Antarctic Peninsula bioregion protrudes 1,300 km from West Antarctica towards the Tierra del Fuego, the southernmost tip of South America. The rocky coasts of the peninsula have the mildest climate in Antarctica and are free of snow in the summer months, supporting an abundance of land and marine biodiversity. The bioregion contains two tundra ecoregions – Scotia Sea Islands Tundra , South Orkney Islands Tundra  – including the Scotia Sea, Orkney Islands, South Georgia and South Sandwich Islands.
