    The MSC Divina cruise ship is seen in Venice lagoon June 16, 2012. Environmentalists urged film diva Sophia Loren to help stop a big cruise ship named in her honor from ever entering the Venice lagoon because of potential damage to the city and the lagoon's delicate ecosystem. The MSC Divina (Divine), which the actress christened last month in France, is a 139,500-tonne ship that can carry 3,500 passengers and nearly 1,000 crew.

    A seagull flies in front of the wreckage of capsized cruise liner Costa Concordia near the harbour of Giglio Porto June 14, 2012. Since the wreck of the Costa Concordia last January, environmentalists have stepped their efforts to have large cruise ships banned from the lagoon which surrounds the historic centre of the canal city. The Concordia capsized off the coast of the Tuscan island of Giglio after it hit rocks. At least 30 people were killed and two are still unaccounted for.

    Brazil?s President Dilma Rousseff speaks during a ceremony marking World Environment Day and the launching of the Rio + 20 conference on sustainable development at Planalto presidential palace in Brasilia, Brazil, Tuesday, June 5, 2012. Rio is hosting the conference on sustainable development while environmentalists protest the government's plan to build a massive dam in the Amazon that they say will devastate wildlife and the livelihoods of thousands of people who live in the area to be flooded. The government says it will be a source of clean, renewable energy, and that it will help fuel the country's economy. The dam would be the world's third largest if completed. (AP Photo/Eraldo Peres)
