Some 140 coloured animals representing Noah’s Arc sailed up the River Seine in Paris on Saturday (September 19).

The display is to raise awareness on climate change as the French capital prepares to host a major UN climate summit in two months.

The animal statues were made out of fully recyclable acrylic sheet and are a creation coordinated by French artist Gad Weil.

“The work of pop art is this, a sort of continuous game for children and families that gives them the chance to take pictures and put them on social networks with the hashtag #ADNClimat along with their suggestions to halt climate change. We will have all sorts of proposals, some more interesting, some less interesting and all these proposals and pictures will be displayed during the [summit],” explained Weil.

The 2015 Paris Climate Conference is set to take place from November 30 to December 11.
