Uruguay Students Look for Life in the Miguelete Stream
Since Uruguay joined the GLOBE Program in 1995, students and teachers have been involved in intensive research projects that aim to improve understanding of the environment amongst themselves and their community. The Republic of India Primary School No. 85 is one of the most productive in Uruguay thanks to the work of dedicated GLOBE teacher Patricia Píriz. Since 2010 students in this school have been involved in a research project to verify the presence of aquatic macroinvertebrates in the Miguelete Stream, one of the most important water sources in Montevideo. The stream measures ​​22 kilometers in length and crosses the city from north to south. It was at one time a preferred site for locals to walk and relax, but has become so polluted in recent years that in 2003 it was categorized as a "dead water course" by "Geo-Uruguay Juvenil," the document on the state of the Environment in 2003. The same was reported by the "Primer Informe Ambiental Montevideo" (IMM) in 2001 when the only existence of an arthropod, an annelid, and a mollusk was reported in the Miguelete.  >>
