Huskies were brought to Wilkes Station by the Americans in 1957, and were augmented by some brought down by the Australians when they took over the station in 1959. Sled dogs were used in the early years of the US Antarctic Program. Dogs and other nonindigenous animals were banned with the Antarctic Conservation Act of 1978.
