Human Footprint in the Antarctic, or Why There Are No More Dogs in Antarctica

Tuesday, 22.09

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.
