The Ocean and Us (Gr 6-12)

by  Aquarium of the Pacific

Program image

Are marine animals the only ones who depend on the ocean for survival? From a major supplier of oxygen, to a steady food source, to regulating weather patterns, the ocean's reach is far and wide. Further, the impact that humans have on the ocean can be equally far reaching. In this interactive and discussion based program, learners will explore this complex relationship between humans and the ocean, thinking critically about the connections we have with the ocean.
