Human impacts on the sub-Antarctic islands stem from sealing and whaling, alien species of plants and animals resulting from human incursions (both temporary and permanent), shipwrecks, settlements and weather stations arising from the Second World War, collecting by scientific expeditions, scientific stations and tourism. Many of these factors remain as important issues for the health and maintenance of the sub-Antarctic.
