A Health Check on the Heart of the Climate
Are you interested in marine biology? Would you like to learn how changes in ocean chemistry are affecting its inhabitants and our planet’s climate? Join Kristin Holloman-Noe, of the North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher, as she discusses ocean acidification and demonstrates its effects on animal populations, including marine invertebrates housed in “living seashells” (calcified exoskeletons). Participants will interact with live animals including a sea star, sea urchin, hermit crab, and more!
