According to Cross, "We selected Oceanites because they are an on-the- ground organization making a huge contribution to our understanding of penguin and seabird populations in Antarctica.
The population data and site information collected by Oceanites is used by tour operators, environmentalists, citizens and governing nations of the Antarctic Treaty to better understand biological processes and to implement management decisions for the preservation of this vast wilderness.
