Antarctica- Google Earth and Whales…

Antarcticagoogle Google Earth has now updated its imagery of the continent, the new higher resolution images just confirm the isolation and extreme nature of the environment. Worth a peak, look out for Nunataks, Glaciers, Ice Shelves, Pack Ice and Pancake Ice.

Japan has also decided not to hunt 50 humpback whales in the Southern Ocean for ‘scientific’ reasons, but will still hunt a 1000 whales of different species. This is despite a moratorium on hunting. Another example of how our extreme environment is used/exploited by humans.
