    Resumen
    • Our study area encompasses all CCAMLR MPA Planning Domains contiguous to mainland Antarctica.
    • We present the preliminary marine Important Bird and Biodiversity Areas (mIBAS) for penguins.
    • A total of 64 definitive sites were identified as IBAs
    • We present a systematic overview of the population and penguin distribution data considered
    • We highlight areas where collaborative efforts could bolster marine spatial planning initiatives for Antarctic penguin species, and their associated biodiversity.
    • We present more detailed results for MPA Planning Domains 3, 4 and 9.
