What does a Polar bear and northern France have in common? The answer is the French National Sea Centre, Nausicaa, in Boulogne and its latest exhibition Ocean & Climate: Getting hot in here!
It draws attention to the importance of the oceans in climate regulation and includes a 3D film with special effects but is only part of the interactive educational attraction, which apart from several tanks of various species, has a tropical lagoon, touch pool, shark aquarium, penguin beach and an outdoor sea lion show.
Meanwhile, in December, Paris will host the 21st climate conference, Paris Climat 2015.
Details of prices for admission for individuals, groups, school parties, families and disabled visitors can be seen at www.nausicaa.fr
