Antarctica: The World's Heritage
March 11, 2014
"Antarctica gives you a taste of what our oceans could have been like before human exploitation. It gives you a perception of what really is important in today's world – A timeless, ancient place of breathtaking beauty and priceless ecological value. In a time where the fate of the natural world, that human survival relies on, hangs in the balance, we must protect Antarctica. If we cannot save a place like Antarctica, then what can we save? Antarctica and its oceans should not only become a World Park, with World Heritage status, it should be protected by an international authority with the policing powers to stop it being marauded. Until that happens, Sea Shepherd Australia will do all it can to protect Antarctica's living ecosystem."
