We have worked on our projects in relation to the main theme on the preservation of biodiversity. In our research we have contacted a variety of scientists and experts that work in this field and interviewed them, We have visited the Museum of Malmö and seen aquariums with the typical marine organisms of Öresund (the strait between Denmark and Sweden). This is a unique marine ecosystem with a salinity of only 1% which makes it extra vulnerable. We have met experts who taught us about the problem with invasive species. We have also visited the Marine competence center in Malmö, met up with marine biologists and learnt about the Sustainable development goal #14 (Life under Water) and various threats to biodiversity – global warming, eutrophication, shipwrecks, plastics and invasive species, to mention a few. At school we have made an exhibition about SDG#14 and these problems in order to teach the rest of the school about it. Another aspect of the project is the measures and preventions that can be done in order to salvage the local biodiversity. For this we have contacted our municipality, The city of Landskrona. Next week we will go to the City Hall to interview the cityecologist who works on projects to preserve natural areas around and in the city. In one place they have recreated wetlands, by digging out a creek to make it meander like it did 200 years ago. On CEI2018 we will present what we´ve learnt on how to preserve biodiversity in our local area.
