In the eye of the climate
DIVE INTO THE EYE OF THE CLIMATE
Enjoy an unusual experience at Nausicaá and dive into the “Eye of the Climate”!
You’ll be surprised by the vision of a house on the point of falling off a cliff, the striking consequence of coastal erosion.
Climatic upheavals are very real and are experienced on a daily basis: as you advance through the exhibition, you’ll discover everyday life in these times of climate change.
Coral reefs, kelp beds, seaweeds, seagrass beds and mangroves, you’ll discover marine ecosystems, biodiversity reserves, and the essential role played by the oceans in climate regulation.
PENGUINS, A SPECIES REPRESENTATIVE OF CLIMATE CHANGE
Present at Nausicaá since 2006, Nausicaá’s African penguins born thanks to breeding programmes, are a species that is suffering from the effects of climate change.
Indeed, changes in the marine currents are forcing these penguins to swim further and further to find their food. The population in the wild now only counts 80,000 birds.
Nausicaá supports the SANCCOB association which is reinstating African penguins in South Africa.
READY FOR AN IMMERSIVE EXPERIENCE IN THE HEART OF THE CLIMATE?
Enter into a climate observation teleportation module that will carry you away from the poles to the oceans, from the forests to the cities, on a journey around the world.
Get ready to meet harp seals in a polar landscape, dive down to discover some sperm whales and narwhales or watch a squirrel monkey in the forests of South America.
This great immersive spectacle made with virtual images will take you to the heart of the world’s ongoing upheavals. The sensations are physical and you will witness the means being implemented at every level of society to combat this and act. The immersive experience ends with a fresco of the measures you can adopt to become a player in the struggle against climate change.
WHAT ARE WE DOING TODAY FOR THE CLIMATE?
“Think climate!” and reduce our impact on the climate. Each everyday action counts and has an impact on our climate. Whether positive or not. Committing ourselves to taking measures in favour of the climate will contribute to reducing our carbon emissions.
- I switch off my electrical devices rather than leaving them on standby.
- I buy second-hand.
- I buy locally and in-season
- For short journeys, I either walk or ride my bike.
