Greenpeace launched After Asbestos, a grassroots, election-like, PR-driven campaign inviting citizens and city officials to put an endangered turtle back on the map, literally. It would be the perfect opportunity to turn a deadly legacy into a hopeful symbol of biodiversity. When Asbestos' public consultation for a new name began, Greenpeace proposed the name of Apalone, an endangered species of softshell turtle found in the region.
