... further into fragile parts of the Antarctic where whales feed. But if enough people check in to the Antarctic, we can help push these vessels out of their feeding waters. If thousands of us check in to the Weddell Sea, many more of our friends, family and colleagues will see just how precious the Antarctic is.
