Antarctic Conservation

Central to UKAHT’s mission is the preservation of our six heritage sites in Antarctica. In this filter, you can see Damoy Hut in Dorian Bay, which stands out as the most modern of our Historic Sites and Monuments in the region. Originally serving as a British summer air facility and transit station for scientists journeying to southern scientific outposts, this hut has a unique history.

In 2023, one of our dedicated field teams took on the task of restoring and repainting Damoy Hut, bringing it back to its original vibrant orange hue. This revitalisation effort not only honours the hut's past but also ensures its continued legacy within the fascinating narrative of Antarctica's exploration.
