Preparing for the next flood

Another historic ship is again seeing the light of day. Greenpeace is building a modern day replica of Noah's Ark atop Mount Ararat.

As an appeal for action on global warming, the German and Turkish activists building the Ark hope to have it complete by May 31st. At 10m x 4m x 4m, that's quite a bit of timber.
Lying at 2,500m above sea level, we can hope that waters don't rise that much.

The NZ Herald has some great shots as construction progresses.
