MAKE SOME NOISE FOR ANTARCTICA

Greenpeace’s Protect the Antarctic campaign is gearing up to the big decision: this October, 25
governments (including the UK) will meet and if they all agree, they could create the largest
protected area on Earth: an Antarctic Ocean Sanctuary. This would put 1.8 million square
kilometres of sensitive Antarctic waters off-limits to industrial activity, creating a safe haven for
whales, penguins and other marine life. Ocean sanctuaries also help us avoid the worst impacts
of climate change, so this would have global benefits.

 

MAKE SOME NOISE FOR ANTARCTICA

In Hobart, Tasmania, from 22 October to 2 November, the Antarctic Ocean Commission will
meet to discuss a range of Antarctic issues, including considering a proposal to create an
Antarctic Ocean Sanctuary. This sanctuary, at five times the size of Germany or 200
Yellowstone National Parks, would be the largest protected area on earth.
