Coming soon…

The waters surrounding Antarctica are still relatively un-touched by human activity. These waters are home to almost 10,000 species, many not found anywhere else on the planet.

Krill are at the heart of this pristine ecosystem. This tiny crustacean plays a crucial role in the ocean food chain, feeding the whales, penguins, seals and birds living in or visiting the waters of Antarctica. Krill is the foundation of this marine wilderness, providing over 96% of the caloric needs of sea- birds and marine mammals.

But this foundation is now threatened by both climate change and krill fishing, putting this vibrant and magnificent natural world at serious risk.

That’s where we come in: we are working to protect krill. For more information visit: www.SumOfUs.org/Antarctica
