Hope Spot - Patagonian Shelf: the widest shelf in the world

About Hope Spot - Patagonian Shelf: the widest shelf in the world
The Patagonian Shelf in the South Atlantic is one of the widest continental shelves in the world and encompasses the Falkland Islands, also known as the Islas Malvinas. Two major wind-driven currents meet here, with the warm and saline Brazil Current flowing southward while mixing with the Falklands or Malvinas Current, which carries cool, less saline, nutrient-rich sub-Antarctic water northward. The confluence of these warm and cold waters creates a productive and very complex marine system that supports diverse communities of species including the southern rockhopper penguin and 16 endemic species of land bird.
About Mission Blue
Mission Blue is an initiative of the Sylvia Earle Alliance to ignite public support for the protection of Hope Spots through the creation of a global network of marine protected areas to safeguard 20% of the ocean by 2020.
