The oceans around Antarctica are the only oceans on earth still
relatively untouched by human activity. Home to over 10,000 diverse
species, the Antarctic Oceans are today under threat.
As part of the Antarctic Ocen Alliance, Republic of Everyone is
helping petition the Convention for the Conservation of Antractic
Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR) to create a series of marine
reserves which will protect this unique marine environment
Our role in the project was to create the online tools allowing
people to 'Join the Watch', adding themselves to the map and
spreading the word via social media. Every time a person adds
themselves to the petition, a personalised message is sent to
CCAMLR on their behalf.
So what are you waiting for, join the watch at antarcticocean.org!
