A comeback for humpbacks? Scientists recently reported a “baby boom” of humpback whale calves near Antarctica. This could be a result of additional ice-free days around the Peninsula, which makes feeding on krill easier for humpbacks—and indicates the importance of strong management of krill stock to ensure this important food source remains available. Establishing a no-take marine protected area in the Peninsula would offer additional certainty that the growing krill fishery won’t compete with marine life in the region, including penguins, seals, and humpback whales. The study was published in the Royal Society Open Science on May 1.

The campaign to create a marine protected area in the #RossSea has just won an Ocean Award from the @BlueMarineFoundation and @BoatInternational! Many people and organisations were involved in this achievement, but congratulations to @Lewis.Pugh, the Last Ocean filmmakers (Peter Young, John Weller, Cassandra Brooks and Peter Ainley), and George Watters for their outstanding contributions. 📷of a Weddell Seal under the ice in the Ross Sea, #Antarctica (©️ John Weller)

Antarctica is one of the most pristine places on the planet. The sea surrounding it is home to seven different species of penguin - but their future is uncertain. Climate change is making it harder for penguins to find food and a safe place to breed.
Krill are the foundation of Antarctica's marine ecosystem. They provide food for penguins and other Antarctic animals like whales and seals.
Protecting krill with a network of marine protected areas means protecting penguins and making their populations more resilient to climate change.

On #WorldPenguinDay, help us to protect their home. 📷©️ John Weller

Gentoo penguins in the Antarctic Peninsula are categorized as Near Threatened with extinction.
Marine protection in the region would help safeguard krill, which is a main source of food for gentoos and other species.

Read more about the threats facing penguins and their habitats this #WorldPenguinDay in @pewenvironment's interview with Ecologist Michelle LaRue. See the link in our bio. 🐧 📷 ©️ John Weller

Happy #WorldPenguinDay!

Emperor penguins are one of the deepest diving birds in the world. They can reach depths of up to 500 metres and spend as long as 20 minutes under water.
Right before they take the plunge, birds will accelerate their heart rate to saturate their bodies with oxygen and then slow it back down to just 6 beats per minute once they’re swimming.

By improving marine protection in the ocean around Antarctica, we have an opportunity to protect these incredible species and their fragile ocean ecosystem for generations to come. 📷 by @sea_view_bruno

Giant leap for penguins! A new “super colony” of 1.5 million Adelie penguins (like the one pictured) was just discovered in western Antarctica by a team led by researchers from Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute. Great news for a species who’s population has dropped 70% in recent decades—and all the more reason to establish a marine protected area off the Western Antarctic Peninsula. 📷 iStockphoto

Happy #ValentinesDay! We're still positively glowing over the designation of the world's largest protected area in Antarctica's Ross Sea—and over Pew illustrator and designer @gabyescalaord's commemorative image of a leopard seal. The species is among the many that benefit from the Ross Sea Region Marine Protected Area.

What comes to mind when you think about Antarctica?

Fill... While Antarctica may be far from human activities, they are under threat for climate change, overfishing, illegal fishing, invasive species, pollution, and any others.

A penguin in snowy Stockholm:) The world has a new goal; to make Antartic the largest sanctuary on the planet. It would be a step in the right direction to give our environment and wild animals a safe space to flourish. More information about the poles, south, and north. Sign a petition on Antartic ocean. "This Sanctuary will only happen if we demand that our leaders protect our shared oceans. This year we have a once in a lifetime opportunity to make it happen – the Antarctic Ocean Commission meets to discuss the proposal in October"- Greenpeace

The commission for the conservation of Antartic marine living resources, CCAMLR, had a meeting in 2017 but they failed to agree on the proposal to protect a large area of east Antarctic. So, Greenpeace has now launched this global campaign so we can show our leaders what we want.

Antarctica is often thought of as a pristine land untouched by human disturbance. Unfortunately this is no longer the case. For little more than a hundred years people have been travelling to Antarctica and in that short time most parts have been visited and we have left more than just footprints. We have driven some Antarctic species to the verge of extinction for economic benefit, killed and disturbed other species, contaminated the soils, discharged sewage to the sea and left rubbish, cairns and tracks in even the most remote parts.
We must realise that there are few unvisited places left on earth with enormous value to humanity. The clean air, water and ice of Antarctica are now of global importance to science for understanding how the Earth's environment is changing both naturally and as a result of human activity.
The sea around the Antarctic Peninsula is magical, fragile place, rich with wildlife, like this humpback whale feeding on krill. It is finally time to protect it.

My All time favourite shot of 2017. Light, location, weather and timing all in perfect harmony. Glaciers calve all the time, but it’s an undeniable fact that they are retreating, when the Glaciers retreat all the way out of the sea to the land behind all levels of Marine life will suffer. -

When you swim past an iceberg all you can hear is bubbling. It's just like the sound of Rice Krispies in milk. Snap, crackle, pop. It's the sound of tiny air bubbles being released from the ice; air that was trapped there thousands of years ago. #Antarctica2020

On one occasion as we zig-zagged between epic locations along the antarctic peninsula, Lewis got in the water at Half Moon Island. Floating ice shelves, glaciers, fur seals, penguins. Nearing sub zero in the water, and potential leopard seals and orcas joining in on the fun. This frame kind of shows the exposure Lewis accepts in the ocean, alone in only speedos, cap and goggles. And determination.

The Tuxedo Army is running for our sixth Charity Partner of 2017 and the Charity Partner for the Platform 9 3/4k (Year 4), the Antarctic and Southern Ocean Coalition.

Hogwarts is the home of many magical creatures and Antarctica is the home to some amazing creatures, too! The Tuxedo Army is honored to be able to fundraise for a special project for @antarcticoceanalliance! ASOC is a global network of conservation organizations seeking to preserve the world's last great wilderness, which belongs to all humankind. ASOC's mission is to protect the Antarctic and Southern Ocean’s unique and vulnerable ecosystems by speaking for Antarctica and its magnificent species - from krill to blue whales. We will be supporting Dr. David Ainley and Dr Grant Ballard's Penquidditch research project for this event. Penguidditch seeks to build a 3D map through the use of GPS tags of the Last Ocean for Adélie penguins to better understand their feeding habits and the impact of rapidly changing sea ice on their ecosystem.
Click the link in our profile to donate directly to the the Tuxedo Army team! The top fundraising team will be crowned the Quidditch champions!

Many thanks to Deborah Winslow for the team artwork featuring Feather, Noodle, Kitty, and Cookie dressed to the nines!

The #iceaxeski team is back from another successful ski expedition to the Antarctic. Here’s Victoria, Caroline, Cynthia, and @richmeyeralpineguide looking like a postcard as we skin up for a dreamy lap. As a species we learn in many ways. The opportunity to actually be here and experience this environment is one that is as inspiring as any I have ever known. You don’t just leave here with other worldly #ski memories, you leave here as an activated advocate for wild places across the globe.

#beeldvandeweek voor één keer exclusief voor online! Je hebt zo van die mensen die voor hun plezier een ijsbeer imiteren. Die één of andere half bevroren plas opzoeken voor de kick. Niet zo @lewis.pugh Deze Brit is een man met een missie. Hij wil iedereen waarschuwen voor de teloorgang van onze oceanen, door overbevissing en de opwarming van de aarde. Diplomatie in een Speedo. Waaróm hij in hemelsnaam slechts enkele centimeters badstof draagt in plaats van een beschermende bodysuit? «Ik vraag van de wereldleiders dat ze moedige beslissingen nemen. Dan moet ik ook zelf moedig zijn.» Deze week zwom Pugh 19 minuten lang in Antarctisch water, goed voor één kilometer. De warme douche van 50 minuten waarop hij zichzelf nadien trakteerde, was meer noodzaak dan luxe: pas dan was zijn lichaamstemperatuur weer op peil. ©️ @kelvintrautman #BVDW #hln #climate #klimaat #climatechange #ocean #antarctica2020
