Protecting a Pristine Ocean

While the Ross Sea is perhaps the most pristine place left in the world’s ocean, the human footprint is fast changing this last place. Even as the effects of climate change are redefining the very fabric of the ecosystem, we have started to exploit the natural resources of the Ross Sea. And though the Ross Sea is in much better shape than the rest of the world’s ocean, protecting this last wilderness could help set the stage for a new age of protections for other critical marine ecosystems around the globe.
