Description
A great resource for alerting young adults to the destruction that infiltrates every aspect of ocean life. This book provides an educational and engaging look at the interdependent relationship between the oceans and ourselves, and what is needed to protect the oceans' ecosystems. Young adults learn about a variety of human activities that affect water temperature, oxygen levels, acidity, ice density, sea levels and sea-life populations. Bates explains how measures such as blue carbon initiatives to prohibit deep-sea mining, replanting mangroves, protecting salt marshes and seagrasses and restoring coral reefs have benefits that have a multiplier effect, and that it is more cost-effective and financially rewarding to do these now rather than later.
