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 seven ecoregions—Central South Antarctic Peninsula (118), Northeast Antarctic Peninsula Tundra (126), Northwest Antarctic Peninsula Tundra (127), Prince Charles Mountains Tundra (128), Scotia Sea Islands Tundra (129), South Antarctic Peninsula Tundra (130), South Orkney Islands Tundra (131).
