Two perspectives of Port Lockroy, a former British military base and then research station on the Antarctic Peninsula. It was abandoned in 1962, and now the larger building functions as a museum. I came across this note about Port Lockroy on Wikipedia:
"A major experiment on the island is to test the effect of tourism on penguins. Half the island is open to tourists, while the other half is reserved for penguins. So far, interestingly, the results show that tourism has a slight positive effect on penguins, possibly due to the presence of people being a deterrent to skuas - Antarctic birds that prey on penguin chicks and eggs."
