What can students do to help the ocean? It turns out, a lot! These students from California are among dozens from the U.S. and Mexico who are developing action plans on ocean and climate-related issues in their local communities. They’re getting advice from their teachers and experts at aquariums and marine research centers. As part of the Third Student Summit on Coastal and Ocean Issues, the students will present their plans in Washington, D.C., on Feb. 15, 2011, in a program that will be webcast live from the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History.
