Ocean Project


Initial questions:

What ocean related problem can be addressed by people?


How can we improve conditions related to the ocean?


Identify an ocean related problem or issue and consider the impact that human activity can make on the
issue? How should we address the issue? What are the options? What are the consequences of each of the
alternatives? What are the consequences and implic
ations of inaction.


Possible Projects
:

Make a poster
(comic strip from comic life, make a

public informational brochure
)
that identifies and explains
an ocean problem or con
t
roversy.

Do a debate on particular topics EX: mining, drilling, farming, runoff,
erosion control, shark feeding,
conservation zones,
fishing practices (shark finning, whale or dolphin harvesting), controversial technology
(i.e. offshore drilling, navy sonar), contamination issues (drift nets, plastics, nuclear or chemical, discharging
bilge or ballast water outside ports). You must choose to defend either pro or con on the issues and debate
against another group who are defending the opposite view.

Interviews either to expand on a topic or get a historical perspective
(this will be

cons
idered bonus
).
