The Millennium Institute of Oceanography (IMO) traveled to Tirúa to disseminate the Marine Sciences within the framework of the group "Wonders of the sea". 2017 is the "Oceans Year" and the great challenge is to reach all Biobio communes.
This group seeks to raise awareness and make known the curiosities of the sea, with the participation and support from PAR Explora Biobío too.
IMO was present with a stand that included general information of the projects “Sumérgete “ and "The Scientific Recipe of Tony Tonina" (“La Receta Científica de Tony Tonina”). In addition, they take zooplankton and deep organisms samples that were taken from the cruises in which IMO participated. Also, the Outreach team gave the talks to the community about "Our Ocean" and "Climate Change".
