Discovering Abundant Corals at Shell's Arctic Drill Site

Video | 2 August, 2012

During the first research submarine dive in the Chukchi Sea, Greenpeace marine biologist John Hocevar discovered abundant Gersemia rubiformis corals, also known as sea raspberry, where Shell hopes to begin Arctic offshore drilling this summer. The discovery raises questions why the Arctic corals are not adequately addressed in the environmental impact statement for Shell's drilling program. Discovering abundant corals in the Arctic waters right where Shell plans to drill this summer shows just how little is known about this fragile and unique region.
