It’s alive! Today, the largest ocean sanctuary in the world was born in the Ross Sea, off the coast of Antarctica. This is a huge victory for the whales, penguins, and toothfish that live there and for the millions of people standing up to protect our oceans.

 

The Ross Sea is home to 45% of the Southern Pacific population of Weddell seals. And now it will be protected!

The Ross Sea is home to 38 percent of the world population of Adélie penguins. And now it will be an Ocean Sanctuary!
