Sea of 2,3 square kilometers, including full protection of the area of 1,6 square kilometers. The southern ocean is a place of population of penguins, whales, sea fishes, and also the Antarctic huge squid. This region has also huge scientific value for studying of functioning of marine ecosystems, and also impact on them global climatic changes. According to experts, it is necessary to create sea reserve zones as soon as possible because too intensive fishing of fish, whaling, environmental pollution, industrial development very soon can ruin all live. In the last two years more than one million people around the world supported protection of waters of Antarctic.
