Other sites in Antarctica that are of significant historic value can be designated as historic sites or monuments.  The Trans-Antarctic Expedition Hut in front of Scott Base and the historic cross on Observation Hill are designated as historic sites or monuments.  The historic huts of Scott and Shackleton at Cape Adare, Hut Point and Cape Royds as well as Borchgrevink’s historic huts at Cape Adare are all listed as historic sites and monuments as well as being designated as Antarctic Specially Protected Areas (ASPA).

Antarctic New Zealand and the New Zealand Antarctic Heritage Trust cooperate closely to protect and managed these important sites in the Ross Sea region.
