Greenpeace ship in Chennai
The Esperanza was given a warm welcome by the sailing community of Chennai who created a flotilla with sailboats and yachts to receive her. The visit to Chennai is part of a global 'Defending our Oceans' expedition – Greenpeace' most ambitious expedition to date – that started in November 2005.
As the Esperanza continues her expedition, she will sail four of the world's five oceans (with the sole exception of the Arctic Ocean) to bring into focus the urgent need to set in place protective measures to conserve marine ecosystems before they are irretrievably destroyed.
Check out Greenpeace Indias website for when the boat will be open for public.
