The day of the Environment

the year 2010 has been nominated as a Year of Biodiversity by the United Nations. The Icelandic Ministry of Environment has chosen April 25th as the day of the Envirionment but the first Icelandic Nature Scientist, Sveinn Pálsson, was born on this day the year 1762.
Unfortunately, The Arctic Fox Centre has no program to celebrate the day of the Environment but we recommend people in Westfjords to visit Ósvör with Nature History Institute in Bolungarvik. They will show you the "live in the shore" from 11.-12 and Ósvör museum will be open too.

In Reykjavík, Askja, the Nature Science building at The University of Iceland will be open from 10.30 - 15.00 on Saturday April 24th. and there are lots of interesting things for the whole family.

We wish you a great summer 2010 and don´t be afraid to visit the Westfjords of Iceland and the totally unique nature and wildlife
