Petition to Protect the Antarctic Ocean
We have a once in a lifetime opportunity to create an Antarctic Ocean Sanctuary which will be the largest protected area on Earth.
The Antarctic Ocean is home to a great diversity of life. It provides food and shelter to incredible iconic creatures.Just 13% of the world’s oceans remain untouched by the damaging impacts of humanity, the first systematic analysis has revealed. The warming climate and an expanding commercial fishing industry are threatening this untouched area of wilderness and its amazing wildlife. We have a once in a lifetime opportunity to create an Antarctic Ocean Sanctuary which will be 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. By working together with the UK Government we can stand up for ocean protection and support the world’s largest Antarctic Ocean Sanctuary.
