Do scientists do more damage to antarctica than tourists?
No, because Tour Operators are bringing uneducated humans to Antarctica which are dumping litter etc, which ruins the effects the wildlife. Also, the ships that Tour Operators use are anchoring into vulnerable areas in Antarctica which obviously destroys that site. Scientists, hardly damage the environment in Antarctica.

Positive effects in antarctica about tourism?
Socio-culture impacts can often effect the environment in positive ways. An example was given in the article Tourism Impacts, Planning and Management on visitors who traveled to Antarctica. These visitors had a great interest in nature and the wildlife of the continent. The knowledge gained from visiting Antarctica helped raise awareness of the need to conserve and preserve the unique environment. Therefore, it is possible to conclude that tourists can become marketing tools for conservation/preservation work for certain areas of the world. Preservation work is a way to raise understanding of environmental values and it can serve as a tool to finance protection of natural areas and increase their economic importance.

What do tourist do in Antarctica?
Commercial tourism in Antarctica is conducted by cruise ships, which sail from South America, New Zealand or Australia. Cruises give tourists the opportunity to view the exotic, icy landscape. Then, guides take tourists to the continent using Zodiac boats. This gives tourists an opportunity to walk near penguin colonies -- when penguins are breeding, and step close to seals, which are also breeding on land. Some tours include abandoned whaling stations. As well, cruises offer on-board lectures to tourists about Antarctic exploration, the science conducted in the Antarctic and the effects of The Antarctic Treaty and its ability to foster global cooperation among governments on the subject of science. Each individual cruise is different from every other cruise. Differing cruise ship operators offer different options for tourists. Under international agreements for tourists in Antarctica, cruise ship operators require that every tourist 'pack it in: pack it out', in much the same way professional mountaineers treat pristine geographies.
