The challenges Antarctica is facing due to climate change
Increase in global temperatures, fluctuating weather conditions and loss of habitats are just some of the challenges that human induced activity is presenting for the icy lanscape of Antarctica.
Climate change induced events are also having significant impacts on marine ecosystems, the organisms and structures that hold together life itself on the continent.
Katherina Petrou is from the School of Life Sciences at the University of Technology Sydney and just under a week ago returned from a research voyage to the continent.
She retells first hand how climate change is shaping the landscape after witnessing it firsthand.
