Antarctica's southern side ocean houses 10,000 species. Out of these 10,000 species, many cannot be fount anywhere else in the world. The fact is Antarctic still has penguin breeding colonies large enough to deafen our ears with their insistent calls. It also has millions of crabeater seals which is second most populous mammal on earth.
Every new research expedition to Antarctic has discovered new species that were unknown to science before. And the samples of mud and water obtained showed 40,000 organisms many of which were new to science.
Antarctic which is home to so many organisms must be protected and we can do that by being a part of this legacy of creating largest network of no-marine reserves.
