Elementary school students learn about marine debris

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThisAlpena, Mich. — The Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary was full of learning this afternoon.Third graders from Besser Elementary in Alpena received a crash course on marine debris. Students participated in engaging activities to get a better understanding of how waste affects our environment. Huron Pines AmeriCorps educational coordinator Adam Ziani breaks down the activities and what the children took away from the afternoon.“We had four different stations set up,” said Ziani. “One was looking at the bolus from an albatross and seeing what an albatross eats, also we looked at microplastics in face wash, we did an experiment that revealed how much plastic is actually in some of the products that we use that eventually ends up being fish food, and then there was a recycling game that we did, and science on a sphere.”The purpose of these activities are to introduce and expose children to human pollution to our waterways and in our environment. Studying bolus from an albatross shows children how human waste can affect the ecosystem. The recycling game taught students where to recycle certain materials in order to keep the environment safe.Educational field trips like the one today are put on by a number of community partners like the Northeast Michigan Great Lakes Stewardship Initiative, U.S. Fish & Wildlife, and the Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary.AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThis Tags: alpena, Besser Elementary, Huron Pines AmeriCorp, Northeast Michigan Great Lakes Stewardship Initiative, Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary, U.S. Fish & WildlifeContinue ReadingPrevious Photo of the Day for Friday, February 22Next City of Alpena working to amend marijuana legislationlast_img read more

first_imgzoomSource: Wikimedia – under the CC BY 2.0 license; Image by: Wei-Te Wong South Korean shipbuilding group Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) has commenced the process to obtain regulatory approval in Japan for its acquisition of compatriot Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering (DSME). HHI is working on submitting a regulatory approval application to Japan Fair Trade Commission (JFTC), a Tokyo-based government agency regulating economic competition, Yonhap News Agency reported.In March this year, HHI signed a formal contract to proceed with the takeover of its smaller rival DSME. The deal was inked with Korean state lender Korea Development Bank (KDB), the majority shareholder in DSME owning a 55.7 percent stake in the company.Under the deal, KDB would sell its DSME stake, that has an estimated value of KRW 2.16 trillion (USD 1.85 billion), to HHI. The bank would transfer its DSME common stock to HHI and buy KRW 1.5 trillion worth of HHI stocks. Additionally, the bank would consider providing KRW 1 trillion as a financial boost to DSME.HHI earlier said that the main prerequisite for the realization of the transaction is the receipt of all government licenses and permits as well as the approval of business combination by domestic and foreign regulatory authorities.Two months ago, HHI officially launched the process to gain the necessary approvals for its DSME takeover. The shipbuilder has so far submitted requests to antitrust regulators in South Korea, China, Kazakhstan and is in the process of submitting the application to the European Union.World Maritime News Stafflast_img read more
