World Largest Pristine Water Sanctuary to Come Up in Antarctica
In an initiative to preserve natural waters where the penguins, icebergs float through the sea and mountains plunge into the frigid waters, the World's largest ocean sanctuary is set come up in Antarctic Ocean.
To save and protect Antarctic the Greenpeace scientists are gathering data to preserve natural pristine water body "Antarctic". Where the penguins, whales, seals, slaps the snake-like creatures which are even longer than 5", ice fish, tube worms, glass sponges, feather stars, sea squirts, lollipop sponges any many more habitat underwater creatures, with such wearied names but yes they are serene, and pure tells Ian Urbina. Apart from living bodies the icebergs float through the sea and mountains plunge into the frigid waters rotating under the deep layer of our planet Earth. The World's largest Ocean Sanctuary is set to come up in Antarctic Ocean.
The Greenpeace research vessel, the ARCTIC SUNRISE is on the voyage through the waters of the southern ocean to document the effect of climate pollution, climate change and fishing over the native habitat of these natural water bodies. To support for proposed Antarctic Ocean Sanctuary, which will be widespread in 1.8 million sq km appx, tell the statement released by Greenpeace, making it the largest protected area on earth providing save heaven for marine life.

According to Greenpeace, the sanctuary is needed to put the area off limits to the krill fishing industry which is looking to expand into the area. Krill is a keystone species in the Antarctic ecosystem and food for many water creatures, most wildlife is either directly or indirectly dependent on it, including penguins, whales and seals.
Greenpeace has proposed Antarctic Ocean Sanctuary which is set to be taken up at the next Convention for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR) by October 2018 in Australia. Ian Urbina one of the members on board, who is on his project in Antarctica and is a reporter for The New York Times. Ian over his SM shared his experiences from the voyage, with Greenpeace in "Arctic Sunrise", along with the international team of scientists to Antarctica on research called "CCAMLR". The research for the creation of a 172,000-square-mile marine protected area banning commercial fishing in these waters shares his magnificent experience as he writes, "I did not envy the challenge these researchers face. Can science ever really capture poetry? Maybe they wouldn't have to, but it did seem to me that one of the best arguments for conservation was the weirdly sublime and exotic beauty of this place, which I imagined would be tough to convey in an academic research paper. It's hard enough to do so in journalistic prose, and I get to use similes and metaphor. - Window To News
