Sub-Antarctic land is a rare resource in world terms. It is appropriate to recognise the sub-Antarctic as a region distinct from the cool
temperate zone to its north and the Antarctic zone to its south, a region with its own characteristics, and with significant intrinsic value
and scientific importance. Appropriate protection from anthropogenic change and exploitation must be ensured for the sub-Antarctic.
