Global leaders have the chance to safeguard nearly 4 million square kilometres of the Southern Ocean - nearly 1% - of the global ocean. The Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR) will meet to decide on protecting three large areas in the Antarctic Peninsula, Weddell Sea, and the waters off East Antarctica.
Although these proposals enjoy wide support, a couple nations continue to delay action. For this reason, we have recently launched a petition
calling on world leaders to protect these areas before it is too late.
Please join the fight to protect one of the world's last great wildernesses.
