STUDENT PRESENTS AT CONFERENCE – Bruce Porter’s science project tested for microplastics near Whitehorse, and last month, he took it to the Expo-Sciences International in Abu Dhabi. He is seen Tuesday at the Northern Contaminants Program (NCP) biennial conference Science Fair Expo at the MacBride Museum. Porter, an F.H. Collins Secondary School student, had been asked to test for microplastics in lake trout, and was scheduled to make a presentation at the conference today. The NCP was established in 1991 in response to concerns about human exposure to elevated levels of contaminants in wildlife species that are important to the traditional diets of northern Indigenous peoples.
