EU to back 2 new MPAs in Antarctica

International efforts to designate as a protected area a vast part of eastern Antarctica and the Weddell Sea, in one of the world’s most important and vulnerable ecosystems, are set to receive a major boost with the European Parliament backing a resolution on Thursday.

It will mean the EU has reached an agreed position after months of consideration, and will be a strong advocate for designating the two marine protected areas (MPAs) stretching over 3 million km2 when world superpowers and signatory countries meet under Commission on the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR) in China next October.
