Visiting Research Fellow Andrea Capurro Featured in National Geographic Documentary on the Antarctic Peninsula

Andrea Capurro, a Visiting Research Fellow at the Frederick S. Pardee Center for the Study of the Longer-Range Future, was recently featured in a National Geographic documentary titled “The Antarctic Peninsula.”

The documentary is the result of a 2019 expedition by the governments of Argentina and Chile in collaboration with National Geographic Pristine Seas, a project to “explore and help inspire the protection of the last wild places in the ocean.” The documentary highlights the region’s unique biodiversity and the urgent need to protect it in the face of climate change.

Capurro is featured in the documentary as a conservation scientist and policy advisor from Argentina, and one of the co-leaders for a proposal to the Convention for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR) to designate a Marine Protected Area (MPA) in the West Antarctic Peninsula and South Scotia Arc.
