Antartica

On assignment for Greenpeace. Over two weeks in late October, governments will meet in Hobart, Australia, to decide whether to create a vast Antarctic Ocean Sanctuary, covering almost two million square kilometres. If it goes ahead, it’ll be the largest protected area on the planet.

The proposed sanctuary is centred on a part of the Antarctic Ocean called the Weddell Sea, which is home to whales, penguins, seals and countless other creatures, some of which we barely understand.
