Stranger Things' Police Chief Hopper is poised to take his dad dance to the Antarctic after thousands of fans backed his campaign online.

Actor David Harbour received the backing of thousands of Twitter users after he asked Greenpeace to let him join their latest expedition and "hone the Hopper dance" with some male emperor penguins.

The Greenpeace Arctic Sunrise ship is on a voyage in the Antarctic as part of a new campaign calling for the establishment of a major new ocean sanctuary covering 1.8 million square kilometres.

It took Harbour less than five hours to garner the 200,000 re-tweets needed to join the mission - with his callout currently sitting on nearly 380,000.

Arctic Sunrise chief mate Fernando officially issued the invite overnight:

Marine Biologist on board the ship today released stunning new video footage from an area of the Antarctic seafloor that had never before been visited by humanity.

The footage shows a marine world carpeted with life - although the agency's experts have warned that there are clear signs the eco-system could be in trouble.

The organisation has warned that the Antarctic Ocean and its iconic creatures are under real threat from a warming climate and the expansion of industrial fishing.
