Greenpeace held a guided visit to the flagship Arctic Sunrise yacht for the employees of Marina Palma Cuarentena and Marina Port de Mallorca yesterday, from 10:30 to 11:00 h.

Greenpeace campaign in Mallorca to prevent the overfishing
Greenpeace is making a stopover in Mallorca to divulge their awareness campaign for the dangers and threats suffered by the seas and oceans in relation to overfishing, fish consumption and other environmental issues that affect the Balearic Islands.

The nongovernmental organization denounces the problems of overfishing and advocates for sustainable fishing. The tasks of awareness for this campaign are aimed at those responsible in the Greenpeace offices in Mallorca.

The main action of Greenpeace in the Balearic Islands dates back to 1996, when they carried out a campaign against the illegal drift fishing in the south of the archipelago of Cabrera by five large Italian fishing vessels.

According to the crew, the NGO has chosen to moor their ship in Marina Palma Cuarentena for its convenience, its affordable prices and the empathy with the team of sailors from the port, in addition to having taken into account its commitment to the environment, its proper waste management, pollution prevention and the rational use of resources, as part of its environmental and ecological policy.

An ice-breaker of 50 metres in length
The Arctic Sunrise yacht, which will remain moored in Marina Palma Cuarentena until March 9th, is one of the three boats of the organization that roam the seas in defense of the environment. This icebreaker´s rounded keel allows navigating through icy areas without being stranded, which has facilitated Greenpeace protest actions in defense of the flora and fauna in Antarctica. This vessel, of 949 tons and 49,62 meters in length, is equipped with 15 crew members, as well as Greenpeace activists.

Built in 1975 in the Netherlands, the expedition yacht Arctic Sunrise has visited Spain to support actions in Huelva, Cadiz, the Canary Islands and the Balearic Islands. Before being acquired by Greenpeace in 1996, the Arctic Sunrise was a ship dedicated to seal hunting.
