WWF calls for protected areas for Antarctica

Having interned at WWF-US back in 2006, this particular article caught my attention with WWF and Antarctica in the same headline. The article talks about WWF calling for marine reserves in areas around Antarctica due to the threat to the biodiversity of the area. The article also mentions the decrease in certain penguin populations as well as krill their main food supply.
