Last year in the blog entry, Oil Spills and WebQuests, I suggested that Oil Spills could be the subject of a good topic to investigate as an Ecological topic as a WebQuest. And they still are!
As a result of the recent NZ oil spill and an article "Oil spill captain appears in court" Oct.12 2011, a WebQuest could be developed on the maritime law around these events. "The charge under section 65 of the Maritime Act carries a maximum penalty of $10,000 fine or 12 months' prison." "Is this seen as reasonable?" could be the big question!
