Story

Southern Ocean

"... You always hear that krill are keystone species, but THAT is a keystone environment - the Southern Ocean. It is SO influential and SO productive, that to lose it, to have it damaged by something as short-sighted as monetary gain, I think that would be devastating...

I would actually love to see someone who was primarily motivated by money to see just how, if you put them face to face with a krill, allow them to have a blue whale breach right next to their boat - that's priceless, that is. And I guess, I hope, that it would re-engage them into nature, realise the actual worth of that environment."
