NATIONS AGREE TO
PROTECT ANTARCTIC WATERS
WITH YOUR SUPPORT, WE HELPED CREATE THE WORLD'S LARGEST OCEAN PROTECTED
AREA IN WATERS NEAR ANTARCTICA.
The Ross Sea off Antarctica is one of the
most untouched wilderness areas on the
planet - and we're determined to keep
it that way. In 2016, after years of work
by WWF and many others, governments
agreed to create the world's largest ocean
protection plan in the Southern Ocean.
An area of over 1.5 million km2
off
Antarctica - the size of France, Germany
and Spain combined - has been set aside
for conservation. More than 70% of it is
a fully protected marine reserve, with
only strictly controlled research fishing
allowed in the rest.
The waters and sea ice of the Ross Sea
teem with life. Its nutrient-rich waters
produce vast quantities of krill and
plankton, which in turn support countless
fish, seabirds, seals and whales. The
area is also home to a third of the world's
Adélie penguins, a quarter of all emperor
penguins, and a third of Antarctic
petrels. Protecting the Ross Sea is a
historic achievement, because it required
the agreement of 24 countries plus the
European Union. It shows that countries
can come together to protect the ocean
we all depend on.
But only 8% of the world ocean is protected
The Ross Sea marine reserve is large -
but covers just one small part of the vast
world ocean. Despite a big increase in
marine protected areas over the last few
years, just 8% of the ocean is officially
protected. Around the world, we're working
with governments, scientists, industry
and local communities to identify areas
for protection and to make sure they're
managed in ways that are good for nature
and people too. We want to see 30% of
land and sea properly protected by 2030.
