We are planning on having a litter pick on a Wednesday afternoon in the next few weeks, so can the PLHS Eco Group please let Ms. Hogg know if you’re free so we can confirm a date soon. Thanks.
2010 is an important year. The United Nations have declared it ‘The International Year of Biodiversity’.
To celebrate this, East Lothian Council and a few organisations are running competitions to help celebrate this event and raise awareness.
1) Photography competition.
The Scottish Seabird Centre are running a photography competition to co-incide with the Year of Biodiversity.
Entries are now being taken for their Nature Photography competition. The competition entry may be a class or an individual entry.
Closing date – 31st October.
For more information visit
or email firstname.lastname@example.org
2) ‘Biodiversity’ Writing competition.
Supported by East and Midlothian Councils, Butterfly World and Tyne and Esk Writers.
Open to S1 – S4.
Entries can be poetry or prose. Collect an entry form from a member of the Biology department. Entries must be with Mrs Bain the school librarian by 1st of October 2010
3) Check out the UN Biodiversity website . It includes a link to the ‘Red list organism of the day’, the red list being a database of organisms in real danger of extinction unless action is taken.
