Single but not solitary

Since I learned that the biological effects of microplastics would be the focus of the GAME project in 2019, I was enthusiastic to participate. The effects of microplastics are a subject that I have been studying already in the last years during my undergraduate course in Marine Biology at the Universidade Federal Fluminense (UFF) in Niterói, […]

It was exciting for us to explore a new GAME site but also exhausting and laborious. […]

The end is near. Thoughts on a project by Team Chile

Last week, we sat with all our GAME friends together, talking, drinking, having fun and suddenly we had this melancholic thought: “damn only one month to go”! Where did all the time go? How fast can a 9-month experience be? We got a bit sad and started talking about all the great things we experienced, […]

Alongside the ocean, in the land of the rising sun

If this is the case, we also want to know if this change is more due to alterations in the […]
