Andres Tarand and Jüri Martin (Estonia)
The season’s first Maritime Forum in Estonian! We will talk about the effect of human activity in Antarctica: why is it prohibited to pee on the ground there or to tread on mosses? We will present interesting examples about practices in the Antarctic to date and try to take a look into the future.
Andres Tarand, a former climatologist, and Jüri Martin, a botanist, have been closely involved in the developments of Estonia’s Antarctic research as well as the establishment of the Estonian Polar Club.
This Maritime Forum will be in Estonian.
The Maritime Forums are free for everyone. The forum will begin at 18.00 and we shall meet shortly before it near the Desk at the Seaplane Harbour.
An aquarium at the Seaplane Harbour now hosts the underwater photography exhibition ‘The Underwater World of Shipwrecks’ by Aire Eder. The aquarium exhibits 26 underwater photos of shipwrecks in Estonia, Norway, Cyprus, Croatia, and Egypt.
Enterprise Estonia (EAS) announced supporting the application of the Estonian Maritime Museum for adding a family-centred attraction to the building complex of Fat Margaret.
The postmark commemorating 50 years since the construction of the research vessel Mare of the Estonian Maritime Museum will be issued on 5 April.
