The Greenpeace ship Esperanza sets off to explore threatened ocean regions. Goal of the one year expedition from the north pole to the south pole is to agree on a global ocean conservation treaty. I spend a few days on the Esperanza during the campaigning in Reykjavik/Iceland.
M/Y Esperanza is an Ice class vessel operated by Greenpeace. It is a 72 m long Ex Russian Navy firefighting ship that has been at the frontline of environmental activism since February 2002
