His critically acclaimed photographs and stories may change the way you think about Antarctica: "I want for us all to be able to tell our grandchildren how we took responsibility for our actions, turned the page, and changed the course of history. And despite the desperate state of the oceans, the brilliant, compassionate people I’ve met along this journey - those who work to protect our natural world - have strengthened my faith that we can." bluespherefoundationconservationantarcticaracingextinctionrossseasaltlifehttps://scontent.cdninstagram.com/t51.2885-15/e35/22580475_1982786888672542_6636613070988771328_n.jpg2017-10-18

Antarctica is considered the last great wilderness on Earth. Untouched by civilization and steeped in stark, chilling beauty, visitors are bound to experience a place unlike any other. The voyage to Antarctica is considered a rite of passage, especially when crossing the legendary Drake Passage.
The Drake Passage is a notorious sea passage with unpredictable water conditions, stretching 600 miles between Cape Horn, Chile to the South Shetland Islands. Named after British explorer Sir Francis Drake, the passage is where the Pacific, Atlantic, and Southern Oceans converge, a mixture of cool and warm sea waters. There are no significant landmasses in the Drake Passage, contributing to the uninterrupted flow of the Antarctic Circumpolar Current, which carries more than 600 times the volume of the Amazon River.
The passage was formed 41 million years ago, when the arm of land that connected South America to Antarctica fell away. The arm also separated the Pacific and Atlantic oceans, making Antarctica much warmer than current day. With the merging of the oceans and the start of the Antarctic Circumpolar Current, Antarctica cooled significantly and formed its renowned ice-cap.
Known for its unpredictable weather, the Drake Passage is daunting but unlike any other sea voyage. The passage has gained a reputation as the “Drake Shake or the Drake Lake”. Depending on the weather, the sea can range from mighty waves and storms to calm, glass-like water. No matter the weather, the experience is a taste of true expedition.
Crossing the Drake Passage is considered an initiation into Antarctica and is the gateway to pristine and boundless wilderness. https://scontent.cdninstagram.com/t51.2885-15/e35/22500579_1931133940235069_4534580613750980608_n.jpg2017-10-18

Marine bio comm. 🐧 🌍 NetworkMarine bio comm. 🐧 🌍 Network2017-10-18Good evening ocean lovers!
OceanFact: After Adélie penguin’s great death that occurred this year, there are scientists who are willing to create another Marine Protected Area (MPA) in East Antarctica. A first step that will not remedy to all the changes that are occurring, but which could prevent further impact that direct anthropogenic pressures, such as tourism and proposed fisheries, will bring.
During these days, 24 countries and the European Union are meeting at the CCAMLR (Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources) in Hobart to discuss the urgent establishment of an MPA on East Antarctica.
MPA establishment is one of the most powerful ways to defend very sensible regions of the ocean, and we really hope that this choice will be made as soon as possible!
If you have any comment don’t hesitate to write us below! More interesting Ocean Facts are coming tomorrow ---- stay tuned!
