Evening with ARPA FVG - Environmental sustainability, marine noise and microplastics

The last of the theme nights organized by our Yacht Club took place with great success on Friday 26th May.
Biologist Claudia Orlandi and physicist Stefania Del Frate from ARPA FVG spoke about their work on marine eco-sustainability, marine noise pollution and microplastics. In particular on the analyses and activities carried out in our Gulf of Trieste.
These topics aroused considerable interest among those present at the evening, which ended with a final toast.
As in the other occasions, the evening ended at the Bris restaurant.
The Yacht Club would like to thank all the members who participated in these “theme evenings”.
Given the interest received, the Yacht Club is studying and intends to propose a new series of evenings in the future.
