Emperor Penguins in Antarctica’s Southern Ocean
Laurent Ballesta Andromède Oceanology

Emperor penguins dive off an ice shelf into Antarctica’s Southern Ocean, one of the least-altered marine ecosystems on Earth. These waters are home to thousands of species found nowhere else and are vital to the health of the planet, producing strong upwelling currents that carry critical nutrients north of the equator and play a role in regulating the climate. To protect this unique and critical region, Pew is working with partners to encourage the adoption of ecosystem-based fisheries management practices and establish a network of large-scale marine protected areas around Antarctica.

Issue Brief

The Southern Ocean is one of the least-altered marine ecosystems on Earth. Encompassing 10% of the world’s ocean, this region surrounding Antarctica is home to thousands of species found nowhere else, from colossal squid and fish with antifreeze proteins in their blood, to bioluminescent worms and brilliantly hued starfish.

Effective marine conservation can help people and nature, conserving critical marine habitat where species may thrive, and significantly boost the global economy, for example by fostering healthy and sustainable fisheries. Pew is working with partners to ensure that the international community builds on this momentum and support to establish and sustain protections to conserve biodiversity in the most important ocean environments.
