Transcript of Antarctic Oceans Alliance

Antarctic Oceans Alliance
Justin Colbourne, Leanne Healey, Jesse Bailey, Christina Romyn, Cortney Lembke
We are here to raise awareness about the importance of protecting the Antarctic oceans and the effects of climate change if left unaddressed
Antarctic Oceans Alliance
It is home to about 10,000 unique species
It is critical to study the effects of climate change
It also houses the least impacted large marine ecosystem known to Earth (The Ross Sea)
Why?
The Alliance is a collection of expert environmental protection organizations trying to establish protected marine reserves in the Antarctic
70% of Earth is ocean and only 2% is Marine Protected Areas (MPAs)
Wildlife in Antarctica is in deep threat from commerical fishing and climate change
Approximately 70% of the Earths freshwater is locked in the Antarctic ice sheets
