Climate change affects our oceans, and us, in so many ways.
Ice sheets are melting, causing sea levels to rise. This is flooding our coastlines, harming important ecosystems and cities. It also speeds up saltwater intrusion, making our water less drinkable.
This microsite was made by a member of Heirs To Our Oceans focusing on the impacts of climate change on our oceans. Heirs To Our Oceans is a group of youth ages 9-17 who are starting a global movement focusing on empowering all youth to increase awareness of the many problems facing our oceans and how they will affect our generation while pushing for solutions to those problems.
