Help stop the exploitation of the Antarctic

In October, members of the Antarctic Ocean Committee will meet to decide whether to protect the Antarctic, or to keep it open to exploitation by corporations.

But the commercial krill fishing industry may be trying to influence governments to block the protection of these waters. They want to keep the Antarctic open for business so they can continue to vacuum up krill by the millions, despite the fact that life in the Antarctic depends on these tiny shrimp-like creatures.

Together, we’re taking on the krill fishing industry to stop them blocking the creation of the largest protected area on Earth.
