It is new beginnings for me here in Beijing. From next week I will be starting work with the Antarctic Ocean Alliance as Digital Campaign Manager. Antarctic Ocean Alliance is a coalition of 17 organisations including WWF, Greenpeace, Greenovation Hub and Oceans 5 – just to name a few. The aim of this campaign is straight forward we are:
Working to establish the world’s largest network of Marine reserves around Antarctica
What really has drawn me in about this campaign is its positivity. Did you know that the world still has amazingly diverse and almost untouched oceans? Well it does and it’s in the Antarctic Ocean. This campaign is not fighting against something it’s fighting for something, protecting something. The Antarctic Ocean is a magical part of the world that I think most people can identify with and would like to see protected.
I’ll be working on the digital campaign all around the world including in China, Russia, Norway, Germany and the US to spread the word and get people onboard. Check out this report on the Ross Sea (part of the Antarctic Ocean) to read more about this ‘Unique intact ecosystem’ and why it’s so important to protect it.
So I am also going to ask you to join in to protect the Antarctic Ocean and all the wonderful creatures that call it home. Go to our home page to Join The Watch and be part of the legacy.
