At least three children have been born in Antarctica. The first was Emilio Marcos Palma, born January 7, 1978 to Argentine parents on the Argentine Base Esperanza, near the tip of the Antarctic peninsula. In 1986, Juan Pablo Camacho was born at the Presidente Eduardo Frei Montalva Base, becoming the first Chilean born in Antarctica. Soon after a girl, Gisella, was born at the same station.
In addition, during the austral summer some nations have numerous occupied locations such as tent camps, summer-long temporary facilities, and mobile traverses in support of research (July 2000 est.)
