WDC joins Antarctic groups calling for Ross Sea protection

WDC, together with the Antarctic Ocean Alliance (AOA) and the Antarctic and Southern Ocean Coalition (ASOC), is calling for a long overdue decision on a network of fully protected marine protected areas in the Antarctic that would feature the Ross Sea, home of possible new species of killer whales, minke whales and much more.

A new report from AOA highlights a small sample of the thousands of resilient species that call the pristine Southern Ocean home. As the 33rd annual CCAMLR (Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources) meeting carries on this week and next, the new report, “33 Species We Love and Must Protect” serves as a symbolic reminder that in order to continue research and discovery in Antarctica and protect many vulnerable and unique species, there must be commitment to preservation through enhanced protection.
