Oceans and Plastic Pollution

Our new classroom resource enables pupils to explore the role of the oceans in our lives and why healthy oceans are so vital to our future.

We all depend on the oceans

From the frozen ice caps of the polar regions to the warm waters of the tropical coral reefs, from deep sea vents to shallow seagrass beds, the oceans contain the greatest diversity of life on Earth. Yet our seas are under threat.

With a growing awareness of the part that they can play in creating a better future for our oceans, pupils will take a step on the journey to becoming global citizens and sustainability champions of the future.
