Narrative

FORMERLY: Site of Special Scientific Interest No. 16 North-east Bailey Peninsula, Budd Coast, Wilkes Land The Site is not unique in the Windmill Islands region context but is representative of a diverse assemblage of vegetation; it contains contrasting habitats and water bodies; has extremely rich (by continental Antarctic standards) lichen and moss communities and an important stand of liverwort. Proximity to Casey Station minimizes logistic problems with respect to field research and, at the same time, maximizes the potential for disturbance of study areas. It is primarily for this latter reason that this Site, where research is concentrated, requires protection.
