Iconic Greenpace icebreaker Arctic Sunrise is coming to Koper, Slovenia. On its journey in the Black Sea, Mediterranean Sea and Atlantic Ocean it shows support to small coastal fishermen and sustainable fishery. The ship will be exhibited from Wednesday (17.4.) to Friday (19.4.) in the Port of Koper at passenger’s terminal from 14:00 to 19:00. Morigenos takes part in a diverse program and activities. We will prepare creative educational workshops for children, information point on dolphins in Slovenian waters and participate in expert meetings and round tables. Morigenos president Tilen Genov will appear as a guest speaker in the expert meeting “Sustainable fishery and protected areas: are fishery reserves fulfilling their purpose?” Two of our researchers will join the crew onboard as marine mammal experts to travel to Sicily and monitor whale and dolphin occurrence on their way.
