What is Greenpeace’s Protect the Antarctic campaign?
This year we have an opportunity to create the largest protected area on Earth: an Antarctic Ocean Sanctuary. It would form a safe haven for penguins, whales and seals.
In October, the Antarctic Ocean Commission (the body that gets to decide whether or not to create a sanctuary) will come together to make their decision. And an Antarctic Ocean Sanctuary will only become a reality if all of the 25 governments on the Commission give it the green light.
Then why is Greenpeace in Cambridge?
Before the meeting in October, scientists and policymakers from all over the world will meet to thrash out the details of the proposed Antarctic Ocean Sanctuary. They’ll use the latest research to decide how the sanctuary should work – then recommend to their governments what to do next.
If scientists in Cambridge make ambitious recommendations, it will help clear the way for a strong proposal for Antarctic protection when the governments responsible for the Antarctic Ocean meet in October.
So help inspire them to think big and join us as we show them why the Antarctic needs protecting.
