Earth for us to protect
Scientists have noticed global changes in the ocean’s water quality and the impact it has had on marine organisms. Our goal is to educate on the effects of increased temperature and ocean acidification and the effects they have on organisms in the Northern Gulf of Mexico. Through this we hope to increase accessibility to resources in the Gulf for all.
