Beluga II in Stralsund
in port for the exhibition in Stralsund.
There will be hands-on activities and an exciting film that depicts the environmental challenges faced by the Arctic today. Greenpeace officials and the Arctic mascot Paula the polar bear will be present at the event.
Today, protecting the Arctic is more important than ever. Despite enormous risks to the unique and delicate Arctic ecosystem, Shell Oil has repeated tried to drill for oil along the coast of Alaska (see also news article July, 30th). The series of breakdowns in their ships has demonstrated a large potential for a major environmental disaster for this vast natural habitat.

10 August 2015: 2pm to 6pm
