Once again, international meeting will try to create vast Antarctic MPA

This week at the international Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR) meeting in Hobart, Tasmania, (October 21 – November 1), the proposal for an East Antarctic Marine Protected Area (MPA) is being resubmitted.


Previous attempts to preserve large areas of ocean off the eastern coast of Antarctica have struck opposition in the past. The proposal was knocked back last year by a number of nations including Russia and China.
