Why Protect Antarctica's Ocean?

Why protect Antarctica's ocean?

Antarctica's ocean is home to some of the most intact and healthy ecosystems left on the planet!

Antarctica's ocean is like a healthy patient, it's like a living laboratory for scientists to learn about how our planet functions and lives.

And healthy patients tell doctors important information about how our bodies work and how we can fix them when we're sick.

If we want to be able to tackle problems like climate change and ocean acidification we need to have areas of the world that show us what a healthy planet looks like.

Antarctica's ocean is one of the only places like this left on Earth. We need to protect it, because our lives depend on it.
