Queen's students sorting plastic samples collected from Lake Ontario.

Dr. Diane Orihel Leads Queen’s Students in Helping Clean Up Lake Ontario

The Great Lakes Plastic Cleanup project has the goal of bringing awareness to plastic in our environment, while also actively removing some of the pollutants from the Great Lakes. This September, students in Dr. Orihel’s 4th year Ecotoxicology course spent time helping with The Great Lakes Plastic Cleanup project by identifying pollutant waste in the Seabins that collect debris from Lake Ontario during field trips to Portsmouth Harbour.
