Leung traveled to the South Shetland Islands, Antarctica last December, as an international member of the Ecuadorian Antarctic Expedition. During his three-week stay at the Greenwich Island Base, Yu-Fai collaborated with Ecuadorian and Spanish colleagues in assessing tourist effects on penguin behavior and the effectiveness of Antarctic Visitor Guidelines. Recognized internationally for his studies on sustainable visitor management, Leung’s research examines visitation patterns and degradation of natural resources in parks and protected areas, conditions of recreation infrastructure, habitat fragmentation by trail proliferation, and visitor‐wildlife interactions.
