During their Protect the Oceans campaign in 2022. Onboard the Arctic Sunrise, Greenpeace International transported a group of scientists and researchers to the Weddell Sea in Antarctica. In order to document their research and find vulnerable marine ecosystems (VMEs) on the Antarctic seafloor, the team participated in a series of dives on board a small submersible. to assist in promoting the call for extensive ocean protection. Follow Dr. Susanne Lockhart, Dr. Rachel Downey, and submarine pilot John Hocevar as they explore this incredible, unseen underwater world. At 65 degrees south, they were able to complete what is thought to be the southernmost scientific submarine dive ever. The lowest extent of Antarctic sea ice ever recorded by satellites allowed for the dive to take place.
Greenpeace International Vision
Optimism, in our opinion, is a type of bravery. In our opinion, one billion brave deeds could usher in a better future. To that end, we set an example of courage, promote courage, share accounts of courageous deeds committed by our supporters and allies, and invite others to step outside of their comfort zones and join us in taking courageous action—both on their own in their daily lives and collectively with others who share our commitment to a better world. Our goal is a world that is green and peaceful. We are all the heroes of our own story because we think that a better world is not only possible, but also being created right now.
