Conference: "MARINE MAMMALS: Science education"

On August 21st scientists present results of EU-funded project "MARINE MAMMALS: Science education" in Kiel.

MARINE MAMMALS is an EU-funded project to further increase young people’s interest in natural science. Nine research institutes and NGO’s from Germany, Poland, Sweden, Belgium and Denmark joined forces for the project in September 2016.
