Claire Christian / Executive Director, Antarctic and Southern Ocean Coalition

In this episode of Upwell, we chat with Claire Christian, the executive director of the Antarctic and Southern Ocean Coalition, who is leading the charge for marine protection in the Southern Ocean surrounding Antarctica.

Show Notes

In the conversation, we discussed the range of fascinating Antarctic ecosystems, how changes in and around the continent will impact the entire ocean and planet, and the global campaign to secure three new marine protected areas in the Southern Ocean, which collectively, would represent the largest act of ocean protection in history.

You can find the Antarctic and Southern Ocean Coalition on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and on their website.
