Working hand in hand with our coalition partners
This place is like the planet’s climate control center, and its waters are like the all-you-can-eat buffet for fish everywhere. Plus, it’s the only continent on Earth that’s all about peace and science. But here’s the scoop – Antarctica is in trouble. The ice is melting, waters are getting warmer, temperatures are rising, and there’s way too much fishing going on. Antarctica and all its cool species need our our support more than ever.
Some facts you need to know
Together, we have the power to influence the future for Antarctica and for humanity as a whole. “The creation of marine protected areas is very important because the first thing it does is protect the overall biodiversity of a place (…). By removing the stress effect caused by fishing from these areas, it allows the ecosystem, through its natural resilience, to confront the impact of climate change.”
