Crew of the Arctic Sunrise

Image | July 9, 2012

Crew of the Arctic Sunrise visit the abandoned Russian settlement / coalmine of Pyramiden, on Svalbard. Girlguides Miryam Justo and Yvette Sena Blankson went ashore to see with their own eyes and discovered there's not only beauty in the Arctic. Seen everywhere in the settlement were enormous amounts of junk, garbage, wrecked gear, abandoned homes and personal items left behind. Seen here is Miryam Justo with a life-size, stuffed polar bear in the museum in the settlement. An international crew is currently on a month-long expedition in the icy Arctic. Greenpeace is campaigning for a global sanctuary to be declared around the uninhabited area of the North Pole.07/04/2012
