Protecting Antarctica's Marine Environment

On this occasion I invite readers to undertake concrete action together to protecting Antarctica's marine environment. The campaign was officially launched in February with a report calling for protection of 3.6 million km2 of Antarctica's Ross Sea and a video with actor and UN Biodiversity Ambassador Edward Norton and oceanographer Dr. Sylvia Earle. But that was only the beginning. We have also launched our campaign in the European Union and Korea and released our latest report calling for over 40% of the Southern Ocean to be protected.

We need as many people as possible to support Antarctic marine protection and to send that message to the body that regulates these waters, the Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR).

Antarctic waters make up almost 10% of the world's seas and are some of the most pristine left on earth. They are home to almost 10,000 unique and diverse species including penguins, Weddell seals, albatross and Antarctic toothfish. The Antarctic Ocean Alliance will campaign over the next two years to save as much of this wonderful environment as possible, but many key decisions will be made in the coming months.

Please help us spread the word. Tell your friends, tell your family. Bug your colleagues, and the people you 'sort of know' - and even the ones you don't.

Tell everyone to: "Join the Watch" and (like you) help us ensure Antarctic's waters are protected as a legacy for future generations. *** [AOA | ECKHART]
