Millions of seabirds and marine mammals live and breed in Antarctica and the surrounding seas. Over the years, many of these species have suffered considerably from human exploitation of the area. Although most species are now protected, many are still seeing a reduction in numbers that is almost certainly linked, directly or indirectly, to human activities such as fishing, pollution and tourism. Only a profound knowledge of the Antarctic ecology can help us protect these animals and their habitats. This is the main goal of our research. The results of our research have been published in both scientific literature and the popular press (publications). In addition, they have been widely distributed among, and used by, relevant governmental and environmental departments (cooperations). In supporting our work you can help preserve the wildlife of Antarctica, so that our children and grandchildren may enjoy it.
