The polar bears are in danger!Climate & Environment Pavilion

The glaciers in the North Pole are melting, and the polar bears are losing their natural habitat. For people living in Korea, however, it is not easy to realize the consequences of such change. The Climate & Environment Pavilion has been designed with the 4 meter-high Arctic glacier and ice shelf and an ice tunnel much like those found in the South Pole. Experience harsh snow storms and learn about the various disasters and damage that can result from climate change. Let’s think about what we can do to reverse these phenomena.
