In 1997, Greenpeace documented a canyon-sized crack in Antarctica's Larsen B ice shelf. In 2002, the ice shelf disintegrated. Scientists were shocked by how fast the 500 billion tonne ice sheet collapsed.
Over the last year we've been part of a group of NGOs called the Antarctic Oceans Alliance, calling for 3.6 square kilometres of Ross Sea habitats to be protected based on current scientific research.
