Pacific Underwater Calendar: Spring

Did you spot any sea life over spring break?

Here is a link to an interesting article about what sea life is like along the Pacific coast in the spring.

Pacific Underwater Calendar:  Spring is in the air and the water.

What you can do to help protect sea life (from the David Suzuki Foundation):

  • Monitor marine mammal populations with a digital app, such as Whale mAPP.

Earth Hour

A message from the World Wildlife Fund (WWF):

“The 10th annual Earth Hour takes place at 8:30 p.m. local time on Saturday, March 19, 2016. Six continents, over 170 countries, and 24 time zones will be united as a global community, making our voices heard through individual action.

Turn off as much power as you can and focus on your commitment to climate action for the rest of this year.”

Earth Hour Activities:

Read a book by flashlight!  How about “Franklin in the Dark”?  Visit your school library to borrow a great book to read for Earth Hour.
