Russia: create the world’s largest marine sanctuary!

To President Putin and other Antarctic Commission leaders:

As citizens from countries around the world, we respectfully call on you to act now to protect Antarctica’s Ross Sea, a precious habitat for whales, penguins and other incredible species and a critical site for scientific research. Specifically we urge you to sign up to the international plan to turn the Ross Sea into the world’s largest marine protected area. Preserving the world's most pristine waters will be a powerful act of global leadership in conservation.

There is one almost completely untouched body of water on our planet - a magical place where majestic blue whales, penguins, and mysterious squid roam free.

But this paradise -- the size of Germany, France and the UK combined -- could soon be lost.
Hunters have already massacred thousands of endangered whales in Antarctica’s Ross Sea, now massive industrial fishing fleets want to devastate the area

But if 24 countries agree, this pristine ocean can become the world’s biggest marine protected area. 23 are finally on board, 1 isn’t -- yet. 


The countries are meeting soon. Sign the petition -- let's create the largest call ever to protect this beautiful ocean.
