A look back
Imagery of an unchanging, inhospitable continent often come to mind when we think of Antarctica. And aspects of this description are entirely true! But Antarctica is teeming with life, too, and the pace of environmental change on the continent is quickening.
We must, as a society, place more value on Antarctica. If not, it won’t just be penguins and seals at risk as climate change speeds up… Mass-melting of Antarctic ice has the capacity to decimate human habitats in the not-so-distant future. Only by recognising this, and I mean really understanding and engaging with this possibility, do we stand a chance at preventing it becoming reality.
Thanks for reading, thanks for caring.
