For 200 years, a small number of countries have exploited the marine wildlife of Antarctica, often with devastating impact on their populations.
More than 280 women in STEMM call for a marine protected area to be established in the waters of the Western Antarctic Peninsula.
Over the past 30 years, the South Pole has been one of the fastest changing places on Earth, warming more than three times quicker than the rest of the world.
How sea water circulates underneath Antarctic ice shelves is a vital missing link in climate change projections.
Preliminary results of a study have shown microplastics have reached in a newly revealed Antarctic environment.
Since 1995, several ice shelves off the Antarctic Peninsula have abruptly disintegrated. A new analysis suggests that these events are triggered when ice shelves lose their buffer of floating ice.
A huge iceberg is set to break free from Antarctica. While the iceberg isn't hugely concerning, it could herald the breakup of the entire Larsen C ice shelf, which could trigger more sea-level rise.
