On May 29 on the celebration of the Heritage Day, the Millennium Institute of Oceanography participated in an open sign for the whole community in the Facultad de Ciencias Naturales y Oceanográficas at the Universidad de Concepción.
With samples of zooplankton, coloring drawings and general information, IMO was present in the activity.
Leissing Frederick, IMO Master student in Oceanography participated enthusiastically from the activity and said: "It is very important, usually people do not know what is in the ocean, apart from the larger organisms. In my case, I'm working with samples of zooplankton and is important that people learn that they contribute as food of higher organisms. "
Positive was the balance of Barbara Léniz, assistant director from outreach team: "These instances are very important, it gives the possibility to the general public to visit scientific work. It is also an instance where all research centers gather in a single moment to deliver information to the audience, from children to adults. "
Finally, the activity also involved other research centers, like: Copas Sur-Austral, INCAR, ALGALAB and IBMA.
