Youth Guide to the Ocean
The ocean has it all: from microscopic life to the largest animal that has ever lived on Earth, from the colourless to the iridescent, from the frozen to the boiling and from the sunlit to the mysterious dark of the deepest parts of the planet. The ocean is the largest ecosystem on Earth and provides 99 percent of the living space for life.
This fact-filled Guide demonstrates the many benefits that the ocean provides us with, discusses the negative impacts that humans unfortunately have on the ocean and explains how good protection and environmental regulation can help. At the end of the Guide, inspiring examples of youth-led initiatives are provided, and an easy-to-follow action plan aims to help YOU develop your own marine projects.type: globe-news
