Greenpeace establishes a base in Antarctica to protest against various international projects including mineral exploration in the area. World Park Base could only be resupplied every 6 months. Once the resupply mission leaves, the crew were on their own. The campaign ends in victory when the members of the Antarctic Treaty agree to a 50 year ban on all mineral exploration. Mission accomplished, Greenpeace dismantle their Antarctic base.
