Adelie penguins walk along ice at Cape Denison, Commonwealth Bay, East Antarctica, in this picture taken December 31, 2009. Antarctica pact partners have set up a new protected geological site on the frozen continent to preserve rare minerals that could shine a spotlight on the region's history and evolution over millions of years. At a meeting in Brazil in May 2014, the signatories to the Antarctic Treaty designated the Larsemann Hills region of the continent as an Antarctic Specially Protected Area.
