Greenpeace protest outside Cairn Energy’s HQ in Edinburgh in solidarity with Alianza Mar Blava (Blue Sea Alliance) who are opposing oil exploration around the Balearic islands. Cairn’s plans threaten the future of tourism, fishing and endangered species like dolphins and turtles.
In Ibiza, the Greenpeace flagship, the Rainbow Warrior, will be joined by a flotilla of boats in a seaborne protest against Cairn Energy’s oil prospecting plans. Ibiza and the Balearic islands are well known to many British people as one of the most beautiful and popular tourist destinations in the Mediterranean. But for local people it is their livelihoods that are under threat.
The waters around Ibiza are particularly sensitive. Just off its coast is an area designated by Unesco as a World Heritage Site for the marine ecosystem supported by posidonia oceanica seagrass which is only found in the Mediterranean.
