Ocean Acidification in the Puget Sound

Scientists predict that ocean acidification will impact communities around the world. One of them is the Suquamish Nation, an American Indian tribe on the Puget Sound, in the Pacific Northwest. Students from the Suquamish Tribal Early College High School produced this video to raise awareness about the economic, environmental, social, and cultural impacts ocean acidification may have on their community. The students were part of the Seattle Aquarium Delegation to the Third Student Summit on the Ocean & Coasts. They presented this video before an audience at the Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History on Feb. 15, 2011. Learn more about the Student Summit or watch the archived webcast on our website.
