"Mouse-Team" at ICBM
German famous children’s TV programme „Broadcast with the Mouse“ visited ICBM this week. On a story around marine litter, video shooting took place last wednesday (11.07.) at the Wilhelmshaven site of the institution as well as near Schillig. The programme is expected to be broadcast on German TV ARD in late summer.
Big success for German biodiversity scientists: The scientific project DynaCom, chaired by the head of ICBM research group Planktology and founding director of Helmholtz Institute for Functional Marine Biodiversity at the University of Oldenburg (HIFMB), Prof. Dr. Helmut Hillebrand, will be funded with three million euros by the DFG (German Research Foundation) in the three years to come.
On 16 June, Prof. Dr. Joerg-Olaf Wolff and Ph.D. student Rosanna Schoeneich-Argent took part in the awards ceremony of the Barthel Foundation funded competition „Frieslands Helden der Heimat“ (Heroes of the Friesian Homeland) in Varel, Lower Saxony. Their project proposal on information on the issues of marine litter won them the second place in the category „Environmental Protection“. They were awarded with the certificate of the prize, remunerated with 5,000 Euros, by Lower Saxony’s Minister of the Environment Olaf Lies.
Recently, participants of the ICBM excursion to the mediterranean island of Giglio depicted their first impressions in a webblog. The students were accompanied by pleasant anticipation when starting their first snorkel tour, which was the first snorkeling experience to some of them at all. The initially even in wetsuits unexpected cold water did not derogate from scientific impetus.
