Sitting at the bottom of the world, the Antarctic is home to a great diversity of life. It provides food and shelter to amazing creatures such as seals, orcas, whales and penguins.
But a warming climate and an expanding commercial fishing industry are threatening this untouched area and its iconic creatures.
The good news is we have a once in a lifetime opportunity to create an Antarctic Ocean Sanctuary - the largest protected area on Earth.
The UK Government plays a vital role in creating an Antarctic Ocean Sanctuary. It’s a part of an Antarctic Ocean Commission which has pledged to protect the Antarctic. But the UK has yet to throw their full weight behind negotiations.
By working together, we can urge the UK Government to stand up for ocean protection and support the world’s largest Antarctic Ocean Sanctuary.
