Help us save Antarctica!!!
Even though there are 17 different species of penguins, only two of the penguins call Antarctica their true home. They are the Emperor Penguin and the Adélie Penguin.
The most common seals found in Antarctica are Leopard Seals, also known as Sea Leopards. Leopard Seals are the second largest seals found in Antarctica after the Southern Elephant Seals.
The largest whale, not only in Antarctica but the world, is the blue whale. This majestic beast wanders in the waters of Antarctica. It mainly feeds on krill which is simular to shrimps but smaller.
Increased Tourism/Oil Spills
Secondly, another an extreme issue that has been identified in Antarctica is oil spills. When people vist Antarctica, they must travel by ships or boats, which could cause oil spills.
Oil spills can affect the entire food chain because krill is the main food source for many of Antarctica's animals. They live in the water and when the oil spills, they get killed, so that significantly affects the animal's food source. When there is an oil spill, there are dangerous gases that leads to air pollution. As a result, this can kill the cute little animals. Do you remember the animals at the top? Don't you want to save them?!
But, there is a solution...
Splish, splash. Can you hear that? Can you hear that? Can you hear the thrashing waves increasing? Well, if you want to help save Antarctica from all these issues, then you must follow the following steps:
DON'T POLLUTE, DON'T CATCH FISH AND COME ON SHIPS THAT DON'T REQUIRE OIL TO POWER UP THE ENGINE!!!
