Earth Day Exclusive: A Deep Dive into the World’s Coral Reefs

starfishDid you know there will be more plastic than fish in the world’s oceans by 2050? Or that cameras are used to measure sharks and other large fish?

Grab your scuba gear and join us for a deep dive with experts from Ocean First Education to investigate these topics and more. We’ll be looking at biodiversity in coral reefs and exploring our ever-changing marine ecosystems.

During this expedition students will learn:

  • How shifting land masses impacted the number and types of organisms in these regions
  • Why releasing a pet lionfish into the ocean is now threatening the biodiversity in the Caribbean and the Atlantic Ocean
  • What scientists are studying with underwater robots
  • How you can take simple steps to preserve the oceans
