Finding solutions to marine trash - teachers have a go in 15 mins
Category : marine
|Just last year more than 2,000 participants removed more than 6 tonnes, some 90% of which plastic, and 60% from land-based sources. But what next? How do we combat the problem at the source?
In NTU LT 19 right now, at the Seashore LIfe Workshop, participants teachers are cracking their heads to figure out for solutions to this marine trash problem we see on our shores. In just 15 minutes! [2.20pm]
Update - Back in NUS, grabbing a bite in the canteen. After that session, I uploaded their ideas while still in NTU's LT19. I did partly that to illustrate how we could share ideas quickly, with little fuss, as I don't see many seashore life or coastal cleanup webpages from Singapore. Yet I encounter lots of interesting ideas during such workshops or when project groups approach me. Pity not to share.
Interestingly, recipients of National Science Foundation grants in the US have to put up webpages such as this one on metazoan parasites of Bornean Sharks and Rays.
After my talk, Juria Chay shared with us thoughts of her Woodlands Ring primary school students from the Seashore LIfe Programme experience - she is sending me her powerpoint later, and I'll add that to web. Inspiring words from some young students!
