🔊 This penguin is on a mission, and so are we. . Antarctica is home to more than 9,000 species of wildlife—and they need protection. . Next week, CCAMLR, the governing body for Antarctica conservation, convenes to consider new marine protected areas in East Antarctica, the Weddell Sea, and the Antarctic Peninsula. . . . #Antarctica2020 #Antarctica #CCAMLR #conservation #penguin @antarcticsouthernocean

Here’s our final message to governments as they get ready to negotiate an Antarctic Ocean Sanctuary. Whether you signed the petition in Berlin, or danced in a penguin costume in Buenos Aires, you’re the reason we might be about to create the largest protected area on Earth. . . @doflwl @bardemantarctic @carlosbardemofficial @thandienewton . . #protectantarctic #antarctic #peoplepower #greenpeace #nature #protect #activism #change #love #wildlife #animals #outdoors #ice #penguins #antarctica #oceansanctuaries #movement #activist #volunteer #polar #conservation #campaign #ccamlr #ccamlr2018

In response to the failure of world leaders to agree on a proposal to protect a large area of East Antarctica, we are now launching a global campaign for an Antarctic Sanctuary covering 1.8 million square kilometres of ocean, to protect whales, penguins and other wildlife as Antarctic nations fall short on marine protection. SHARE if you're with us! Over the next 12 months we have an opportunity to make history: to create an Antarctic Ocean Sanctuary which would be the largest protected area on Earth. Ocean sanctuaries not only protect incredible wildlife like whales and penguins, but they ensure healthy oceans which soak up carbon dioxide and help us to tackle climate change. Together we can do it. Watch this space! . #antarctica #antarctic #iceberg #penguin #penguins #whales #antarcticsanctuary #greenpeace #ccamlr #ccamlr2017 #marinereserve #krill #leopardseal #adeliepenguin #emperorpenguin

Photo by @PaulNicklen // An emperor penguin rockets out of the ocean with a belly full of krill on its way to feed its chick. Unfortunately, the future may not be so bright for these charismatic, flight-less birds as ice in Antarctica continues to melt. The Commission of the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources ( #CCAMLR) is an organization that works to conserve and protect wildlife which inhabits the Southern Ocean. This Commission of 25 members meets every year to discuss and make decisions on matters in the area involving topics such as fisheries, total allowable catches, and marine protected areas (MPAs). With new science revealing the imminence of increasing temperatures across the planet, it has been pointed out that Antarctica is at risk of rapid ice melt that could prove to be catastrophic. With the effects of #climatechange especially concentrated in the poles, urgent action is required to protect remaining ecosystems in this fragile area. This year’s CCAMLR annual meeting has already commenced, and members from 24 nations and the European Union will have the opportunity make advancements around three MPAs, in particular: Eastern Antarctica, the Weddell Sea, and the Antarctic Peninsula. Marine protected areas allow for ecosystems to recover, for science to take place, and for areas to increase climate change resilience @antarcticsouthernocean. Check out www.nationalgeographic.com to see @PaulNicklen and @CristinaMittermeier's most recent work in the Antarctica Peninsula, and learn more about the rapid changes occurring in this fragile environment.

Photo @ladzinski / Photos like this aren’t easy to look at, in fact, they’re completely heartbreaking. However, the hope is that they ultimately encourage change and better understanding. This is a juvenile #gentoo #penguin, soaking wet from rain and bearing an injury. As the Antarctica peninsula continues to warm, precipitation is slowly changing from snow to rain, with many new consequences. There has been a vast increase in young penguins and other birds freezing to death, due to these newly wet conditions in this cold environment. Studies have also shown that penguin populations are decreasing due to habitat loss and fish stock depletion. Further, rain is also exasperating the ice melt, excelerating an already bad situation. It’s critically important that we pay attention to these signs and make changes, climate change is real and we are contributing to it. It’s extremely important to secure habitat and fishing stocks, notably Krill, a shrimp that nearly every mammal here relies on. Krill feed on sea ice, a habitat of bacteria, algae and crustaceans. If krill is over fished each and every animal that relies on it, like numerous species of whale, seal and penguin, will have nothing left to eat. Now, more than ever, we look to the leadership of #CCAMLR, the council responsible for managing the marine living resources in the waters surrounding Antarctica, to make the right decisions on how Antarcticas oceans are fished responsibly.

#Repost @natgeo 威德爾海豹從下午的午睡中醒來。 Photo by @CristinaMittermeier // A Weddell seal wakes up from its afternoon nap as I silently approach its floating ice bed by kayak. The Antarctic Peninsula is an important area for animals like seals, whales and penguins to breed, rest and feed on the abundant krill populations found here. Wildlife must compete with a large fleet of vessels from countries like Norway and China, whose industrialized fishing fleet sucks millions of pounds of krill used in Omega 3 supplements and fish farm feed. I took this photograph as part of a @NatGeo and @Sea_Legacy expedition to call for the protection of the waters surrounding the Peninsula so that wildlife has a better chance to thrive.

paulnicklen The sun skims across the horizon at 1am on the frozen Ross Sea, Antarctica. It took years of political negotiation, applications, and approvals to arrive at this beautiful moment in time: this white seascape, painted with the shadows of resilient and powerful emperor penguins, was finally a marine protected area. That was back in 2016. Much more of the Antarctic needs the same protection. But the 2018 Convention for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources ( #CCAMLR) saw politics overrule science and resulted in no further protection of this beautiful place.

#Repost @greg_renard • • • • • I haven’t posted anything in a long time due to my pretty busy life as a masters student here @uniofyork ! It’s been an amazing first term and I am just incredibly happy to be studying here alongside great people in shared passion for our oceans. As part of one module we are doing a coursework about a marine ecosystem of our choice and as you can see I decided for the Ross Sea and made this little design alongside my essay. In 2017 the Ross Sea became the largest Marine Protected Area (MPA) on the Planet and it makes me very happy to know that animals such as Weddell seals, killer whales and Adélie Penguins can now enjoy a life without having to compete for food with an industrial fishing fleet, which was harvesting toothfish on an epic scale. Organizations like @greenpeace have encouraged millions of people to support the campaign and put pressure on decision makers. Stocks will need to recover for years and years though, the MPA is currently only in place for 35 years and other threats through human activity such as climate change and ocean acidification with its multitude impacts are predicted to also influence Antarctica at an increasing rate in the coming decades. A couple of weeks ago we saw Japan, Norway and Russia block a further MPA to be created at the other side of the continent, the Weddell Sea, which is currently being heavily fished for Krill (tiny little crustaceans who are a main reason for the abundance of wildlife in the souther ocean) as some nations embark further and further (subsidizing a totally unsustainable industry) to feed the worlds hunger for seafood. What happens here is called fishing down the food web and has to stop!! The krill is often made to fish meal which is then fed to for example salmon in aquaculture, heavily demanded by consumers. Let’s all hope that next year the pressure (and scientific evidence) will finally bring protection to this unique part of our world. #protectantarctic #weddellsea #oceansanctuaries #ccamlr #whales #penguins #nature #oceans

Over the last two weeks, a group of governments tried to negotiate a new Antarctic Ocean Sanctuary. Sadly, they failed. Although 22 governments supported an ambitious sanctuary, the Norwegian, Chinese and Russian negotiators were able to stop it from going ahead. But this isn’t over. Together, we’re going to come back stronger than ever to protect the Antarctic - and ocean life everywhere. . . ¡Malas noticias! Los gobiernos reunidos estos días en Tasmania no han logrado llegar a un acuerdo para crear un gran Santuario Antártico. La propuesta ha sido respaldada por 22 de los 25 gobiernos miembros de la Comisión del Océano Antártico, pero era necesario consenso. Han sido China, Rusia y Noruega los países que han votado en contra del santuario. Casi tres millones de personas en todo el mundo apoyaban la creación de este santuario, que se hubiera convertido en la mayor área protegida del planeta. ¡Seguimos trabajando para conseguirlo! . . #antarctic #protectantarctic #oceansanctuaries #penguin #pingu #fail #oceans #ccamlr #greenpeace #thisaintover #wellbeback

A week after the disappointing outcome of the Convention for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources ( #CCAMLR), here's what Dr. Rodolfo Werner Kinkelin, a respected senior advisor who has been attending CCAMLR meetings for the past 10 years, had to say: "Unfortunately we are in the same place we were last year. [...] High is the degree of frustration of many members to see that all the rigorous work done during the year is not reflected in the actions of this commission. And high is also the level of bewilderment about the future of this Convention. The credibility of the Commission is at stake if it consistently fails to realize the conservation objectives of the Convention. Instead of fulfilling this objective, as the Commission deliberates behind closed doors, one of the world’s most important and iconic habitats, beloved to millions around the world, does not receive the protections it needs." But we will not be defeated by this. The need to protect the beautiful Antarctic waters of the Southern Ocean is high on our list of priorities, so stay tuned because we're in this for the long haul.

@Regran_ed from @paulnicklen - When you spend so much quality time both above and below the ice with charismatic and vulnerable species like emperor penguins, you get emotional when they are given protection. Several years ago, more than 650,000 square miles of the Ross Sea around Antarctica (an area the size of Spain and France combined) was protected under The Commission of the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources ( #CCAMLR), an organization that works to conserve and protect wildlife that inhabits the Southern Ocean. This year’s CCAMLR annual meeting has already started, and members from 24 nations and the European Union have the opportunity to move forward three proposed Marine Protected Areas: Eastern Antarctica, the Weddell Sea, and the Antarctic Peninsula. Marine protected areas remain one of the most crucial tools for sustaining ecosystem health and curbing  #climatechange. I'm looking forward to hearing positive news come from these meetings.   #TurningTheTide with @CristinaMittermeier, @Ladzinski, @Andy_Mann, @ShaneMooreFilms, @CraigWelch, @PattersonImages, @rodolfowerner @antarcticsouthernocean @sealegacy - #regrann

Via @paulnicklen It is really disappointing to see #CCAMLR2018 negotiations fail to conserve the #Antarctic southern ocean once again despite three strong MPA proposals desperately needing progress. We are running out of time and I feel more motivated than ever to use visual story-telling to drive the conservation of the most fragile and beautiful places on this planet. There’s too much at stake to let up now. Please stick with me and @sealegacy as we take the next year to push #CCAMLR to do better and be a successful model for ocean management.

Sometimes I let my mind get lost in the beauty of what I am seeing, like these two King penguins in South Georgia . The abstractions of nature and the simplicty of shape and form mesmerize me. If I am lucky, I can forget to eat or drink for hours at a time, as I soak up what nature has to offer. #CCAMLR #ProtectAntarctica

How to stop overfishing of the Oceans? Yesterday, the negotiation to create the world’s biggest marine sanctuary in the Arctic failed mainly due to resistance from Norway, Russia and China. International organisations such as the CCAMLR are unable to provide solutions although evidence that animal populations reach critically low levels abound. Time is running up and we are still dragging our feet. Shame.

Failure and disappointment! at the annual meeting of the Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR), which closed yesterday in Hobart, Australia. No new Marine Protected Areas in #Antarctica have been promulgated this year! 22 countries backed the proposed Weddell Sea MPA, but it was ultimately not supported by three countries: Russia, China and Norway. In addition, the proposed MPA in East Antarctica did not progress at the meeting for the 7th year in a row! Many organizations are now questioning whether CCAMLR is fit for purpose. https://bit.ly/2Dhh80c Map: Roura & The Pew Charitable Trusts * * * #mpa #Conservation #MarineProtection #CCAMLR #Greenpeace

Na žalost rezervata niso potrdili. 💔 Čeprav je 22 vlad odločitev podpiralo, so norveški, kitajski in ruski pogajalci uspeli preprečiti ustanovitev največjega zaščitenega območja. Ampak to ni konec!

南極のサンクチュアリ、決まらなかったらしいよ。残念だね。 ・・・2週間にわたって行われた国際会議にて、南極に世界最大のサンクチュアリ(海洋保護区)を作る動きは、少数の国によりブロックされてしまいました😰 これは、南極にすむペンギンやクジラ、アザラシなどの類まれな野生生物を、過剰漁業、汚染、気候変動といったプレッシャーにさらし続けることを意味します。 でも、200万人が参加したこのムーブメントの確かな成果も感じています。日本を含めて、22の政府団がサンクチュアリに賛同してくれたのです😊👍 日本政府に提出した私たちの声は聞き届けられ、賛同に回るように後押ししたのです! 南極海に広大なサンクチュアリができる日まで、このムーブメントは続きます。南極だけでなく、世界中の海の命を守るため、これまで以上にムーブメントを盛り上げる必要があります。皆さんの想いを、コメントにぜひ寄せてください💙🐧🐋 #antarctic #protectantarctic #oceansanctuaries #penguin #pingu #fail #oceans #ccamlr #greenpeace #thisaintover #wellbeback #ペンギン #南極 #かわいい #動物 #かわいい動物 #環境 #グリーンピース #自然 ##流氷 #

ANTARKTISKT HAVSRESERVAT STOPPAS 🚫 Under de senaste två veckorna har den antarktiska havskommissionen försökt förhandla fram ett havsreservat i Antarktis. Tyvärr gick det inte igenom. Trots att tre miljoner människor och en övervägande majoritet av regeringarna i den antarktiska havskommissionen ville få till ett stort antarktiskt havsreservat kunde kommissionen inte enas och besluta om det reservat som Antarktis så väl behöver. Delegationer från Norge, Ryssland och Kina satte käppar i hjulet. Men än är det inte över. Vi kommer att fortsätta kämpa för haven och deras välmående.

Although 22 governments supported an ambitious sanctuary, the Norwegian, Chinese and Russian negotiators were able to stop it from going ahead. But this isn’t over. Together, we’re going to come back stronger than ever to protect the Antarctic - and ocean life everywhere. Are you in?

It’s the weekend! Happy Friday! Enjoy and be safe!🤗☀️🌈🌟🐧💖 #Repost @paulnicklen ・・・ When you spend so much quality time both above and below the ice with charismatic and vulnerable species like emperor penguins, you get emotional when they are given protection. Several years ago, more than 650,000 square miles of the Ross Sea around Antarctica (an area the size of Spain and France combined) was protected under The Commission of the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources ( #CCAMLR), an organization that works to conserve and protect wildlife that inhabits the Southern Ocean. This year’s CCAMLR annual meeting has already started, and members from 24 nations and the European Union have the opportunity to move forward three proposed Marine Protected Areas: Eastern Antarctica, the Weddell Sea, and the Antarctic Peninsula. Marine protected areas remain one of the most crucial tools for sustaining ecosystem health and curbing  #climatechange. I'm looking forward to hearing positive news come from these meetings. #arctic #penguins #makeadifference #amazing_shots #landscapephotography #landscape_hunter #landscape_lover #landscape_capture #conservation #naturephotos #natgeowild #natgeoadventure #natgeohub #seetheworld #travellovers #travelandleisure #nature_photo #nature_special_ #weareone

Das heutige Scheitern der Verhandlungen der Antarktiskommission zur Errichtung des größten Meeresschutzgebiets der Erde ist ein schwerer Rückschlag und eine herbe Enttäuschung für den internationalen Schutz der Meere. 🌊 Besonders angesichts des schnell voranschreitenden Artensterbens und der globalen Klimakrise wäre es ein längst überfälliges Zeichen gewesen, das Weddellmeer rasch zum Naturschutzgebiet zu erklären. Damit hätte dieses bedrohte Ökosystem mit seiner einzigartigen Tier- und Pflanzenwelt vor weiteren Schäden bewahrt werden können. 🌊 Es ist enttäuschend, dass der Schutz der Meere trotz gemeinsamer internationaler Ziele zum Klimaschutz und zum Erhalt der Artenvielfalt erneut hinter wirtschaftlichen und politischen Interessen zurückstehen muss. Damit wurde eine wichtige Chance verpasst, sich der Krise unserer Weltmeere und maritimer Ökosysteme entgegenzustellen. 🌊 Alle Kraft muss sich nun auf die nächste Verhandlungsrunde im kommenden Jahr richten. Dort besteht erneut die Chance, das Weddellmeer der Antarktis zum Meeresschutzgebiet zu erklären. . . . #Klimakrise #Weddellmeer #Antarktis #Meer #Schutz #Klimaschutz #Natur #Umwelt #Reichtum @protectantarctic #Europa #Vielfalt #sdg14 #ccamlr @mvabercron @hagenreinhold @frank.schwabe @bardemantarctic
