這將由英國南極遺產信託基金（UKAHT）起草。它將決定未來任何接近 "耐力號 "的人將受到的各種限制和責任。
英國南極調查局的Mike Meredith教授在最近的一次極地地區所有黨派議會小組會議上說。"最近，由於許多因素，已經確定了海冰的大退縮，2022年是威德爾海有記錄以來的最低點。毫無疑問，氣候變化對海冰覆蓋的影響將使 "耐力號 "沉船在未來更容易到達。"
This will be drawn up by the UK Antarctic Heritage Trust (UKAHT). It will determine the kinds of restrictions and responsibilities that will be placed on anyone who goes near Endurance in the future.
A little vagueness might have been regarded as more appropriate given the way some marine archaeological sites have been looted in the past. But the location's general inaccessibility as a result of it being covered by perennial sea-ice is a unique deterrent, says Amanda Milling, the minister responsible for polar regions at the UK's Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO).
"That may not be forever, not least due to climate change and shrinking sea-ice. That is why we have commissioned the UK Antarctic Heritage Trust to work with experts to prepare a conservation management plan, and to consider whether additional protection measures are needed.
The new 500m perimeter has been established to encompass any objects that may have separated from Endurance as it descended to the seabed. This would include parts of the ship (although it looks very intact in the submersible scans) and any of the crew's belongings.
"As you know, tourism is growing around the Antarctic Peninsula, and people are looking for new opportunities, and new adventures, and trips into the Weddell Sea will definitely be on the cards. But it'll be a while, I think, before ice conditions change to allow a super yacht to get that deep into the Weddell Sea," said Camilla Nichol, the CEO of UKAHT.
Prof Mike Meredith, from the British Antarctic Survey, told a recent meeting of the All-Party Parliamentary Group for the Polar Regions: "A big retreat in sea-ice has been identified recently, due to many factors, and 2022 was the lowest recorded minimum in the Weddell Sea. There's no doubt that the effects of climate change on sea-ice cover will make the Endurance wreck more accessible in the future."
