Linda Zynas, a 42-year-old from California, told The Independent she planned the Antarctica March out of concerns for the environment during Trump's presidency.

“I set it up because I wanted to participate in the Women’s March,” she said. “I spent a month after the election mourning the impending damage to the earth that will be done. I felt like I needed to do something to be part of the global movement.”

It will take place in Paradise Bay, an area of Antarctica known for its gentoo penguin population.

The "international group of eco-minded visitors" will carry signs saying "Penguins for Peace," "Seals for Science," "Cormorants for Climate," and "Love from seven continents."

The participants "range in age from 24 to 87, male and female, from over six countries," Zynas said.

In order to limit environmental impact, "the actual marching will be short as we have to limit our footprint on land," she said.

People are pretty freaking amazed by the Antarctica marchers.
