    The Antarctic and Southern Ocean Coalition (ASOC) is a global coalition of environmental non-governmental organizations with more than members in 40 countries worldwide. ASOC has worked since to ensure that the Antarctic Continent, its surrounding islands and the great Southern Ocean survive as the world's last unspoiled wilderness, a global commons for the heritage of future . At the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR) currently meeting in Hobart, Australia, the Antarctic Ocean Alliance are appealing for nations to ensure the future of the Antarctic and Southern Ocean. This week, representatives from 25 governments are gathering in Hobart to address three proposed marine protected areas, amounting to more than five million square kilometres of.

      Some consider the Arctic, Atlantic, Indian, and Pacific to be the world's four oceans. Now, those that side with the number five can add the fifth new ocean and call it the Southern Ocean or the Antarctic Ocean, thanks to the International Hydrographic Organization (IHO). The Human Impacts program aims to understand the Antarctic environment and the impact of human activities upon it. The Antarctic Marine Living Resources (AMLR) program concentrates on obtaining information to manage the sustainable use of Southern Ocean fisheries and to protect the marine environment around Antarctica.

Additional Physical Format: Online version: Hislop, Cheryle. Protecting the Antarctic and Southern Ocean. Hobart: University of Tasmania Law Press,   Antarctica’s Southern Ocean is one of the world’s last great wilderness areas, surrounding the coldest, driest, windiest, and least altered continent.

The ocean’s frigid waters bustle with thousands of species found nowhere else, from brilliantly hued starfish and bioluminescent worms to pastel octopuses. Nutrients that well up from the icy depths ride currents great distances to nourish. The Southern Ocean, also known as the Antarctic Ocean or the Austral Ocean, comprises the southernmost waters of the World Ocean, generally taken to be south of 60° S latitude and encircling Antarctica.

As such, it is regarded as the second-smallest of the five principal oceanic divisions: smaller than the Pacific, Atlantic, and Indian Oceans but larger than the Arctic Ocean.

On the morning of 1 MarchRichard Laws, the director of the British Antarctic Survey and a leading marine biologist, gave a scientific lecture describing the characteristics of the Southern Ocean ecosystem to the first session of a diplomatic conference on the conservation of Antarctica’s marine living resources in Canberra, : Alessandro Antonello.

The frozen southern pole is a haven for wildlife. Whales, seals and penguins feast in the Antarctic’s southern ocean and international agreements protect the icy continent.

But commercial fishing and climate change pose a threat. So we need to create a giant ocean sanctuary, the biggest on Earth, to protect the Antarctic. Protecting the Antarctic Environment Conservation Antarctica is unique as it is an isolated landmass with no permanent human settlements surrounded by a wide, cold and stormy ocean.

There are few people who can perceive the benefits of Antarctica who also have clear opinions based on personal experience of the continent. 1 day ago  The Antarctic blue whale (Balaenoptera musculus ssp.

Intermedia) is the largest animal on the planet, but it is critically endangered. WWF is working to protect blue whale habitat, and a remarkable number of blue whales were recently sighted in the southern Atlantic ocean.

Most of the world's large whale species are found in the Antarctic among a diverse marine ecosystem of over 8, species, more than half of which are seen n. Our mission is to protect the Antarctic and Southern Ocean’s unique and vulnerable ecosystems by providing the unified voice of the NGO community.

Unbroken by any other continental landmass, the Southern Ocean’s narrowest constriction is the Drake Passage, miles wide, between South America and the tip of the Antarctic Peninsula.

Today the Antarctic Ocean Alliance, which includes Greenpeace and partner groups, is launching a new publication, ‘Antarctic Ocean Legacy: A Vision for Circumpolar Protection’ which makes the case for the creation of a network of 19 large no-take marine reserves and marine protected areas covering over 40% of the Southern Ocean and the.

We have a once-in-a-generation chance to do things differently. Antarctica and the Southern Ocean cover one-tenth of the earth's surface. In a legal and environmental sense, Antarctica represents the geography of hope.

It is the freshest and most pristine of regions, governed by a legal regime that offers Antarctica and its circumpolar water the unique possibility of becoming the world's first global wilderness preserve.5/5(1).

The convention’s main mission is to conserve Antarctic marine life. Cambridge, UK – A Greenpeace campaign to protect the Antarctic Ocean, backed by million people globally, has received the unprecedented support of the vast majority of krill fishing companies operating in Antarctic waters.

The move was announced at Greenpeace’s Antarctic ° event in Cambridge, UK, attended by scientists and Oscar-winning actor Javier Bardem, who joined. This research focus aims to develop a system of marine protected areas in the Southern Ocean. Spatial protection for marine biodiversity is a priority issue identified by both the Committee for Environmental Protection and the Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources ().).

Our research aims to support the development of a comprehensive, adequate and representative. What better conservation of the Antarctic ocean could there be than the creation of the largest protected area on Earth at its heart, in the Weddell sea. It would put the area off-limits to future.This ocean has the largest ocean current, called the Antarctic Circumpolar Current.
