    Creation of Antarctica marine protected areas blocked by China and Russia

    “Appalling attitude” from China and Russia ignoring majority of CCAMLR, said Mark Epstein, from Antarctic and Southern Ocean Coalition (ASOC).

    The Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR) has again failed to agree to protect key areas in the Ross Sea and East Antarctica at its annual meeting in Hobart due to blocking by China and Russia. The partners of the Antarctic Ocean Alliance (AOA) said that this failure to reach consensus for the fourth time calls into question CCAMLR’s ability to deliver on its conservation commitments.
