Russia                   and Ukraine have blocked the creation of the world’s largest                   ocean sanctuaries around Antarctica… again. This has                   demonstrated their sheer lack of political will to protect the                   last ocean wilderness on earth.This                   comes a mere three months after Russia and Ukraine pulled the                   rug out from underneath negotiations in Germany. These two                   states continue to steadily erode the genuine efforts of other                   countries to protect these waters for future generations.Unlike                   Russia and Ukraine, we have the will and determination                   to keep up the fight to protect these pristine waters                   and the thousands of species that call it home. We                   know that you do too. Share                   the above picture with your friends and family                   and ask them to Join                   The Watch today.

There                   is no doubt the 25 Members of CCAMLR (the Commission for the                   Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources) feel the                   public pressure and know the world is watching their every                   move. Because of our campaign, countries like South                   Korea, Norway and Chile are becoming more and more supportive                   of Southern Ocean marine protection. Now we need to                   escalate public support and you are the agents to make this                   happen.

The                   two ocean sanctuary proposals that CCAMLR failed to pass were                   a US and New Zealand proposal for the Ross Sea, known as the                   most intact marine ecosystem left on earth, and a proposal                   from Australia, France and the EU for an East Antarctic ocean                   sanctuary.

While                   this is a major disappointment, our hopes remain strong for                   2014. Stay tuned.
