Antarctic Specially Protected Area No. 117 Avian Island, Marguerite Bay, Antarctic PeninsulaLat. 67°46−S; Long. 68°54−W

Avian Island is situated in the north-west of Marguerite Bay, 400 metres south of the south-western extremity of Adelaide Island. The island is 1.45 kilometres long by 0.8 kilometres at its widest, and is of roughly triangular shape. It is rocky with a low relief of generally less than 10 metres in the north, rising to about 30 metres at the centre, and 40 metres in the south where several rock and ice slopes of up to 30 metres drop steeply to the sea. The coastline is irregular and rocky with numerous offshore islets, although there are several accessible beaches on the northern and eastern coasts. The designated Area comprises the whole of Avian Island and the littoral zone, offshore islets and rocks, and a buffer zone of the surrounding marine environment (including sea ice when present) within 100 metres of the shoreline of the main island (Map 2).
