The waters of Antarctica are some of the most pristine wilderness on earth. All life here relies solely on the bounty of the Southern Ocean. Some bold moves are being made to give conservation protection to this important earth system. However as we give protection to large remote areas of ocean it makes us realise that our coastlines close to home also need protection in order to sustain life on earth. This short film is a poetic Natural History documentary that looks at the animals and environments of the Ross Sea and Sub Antarctic Islands.
