Sharing Ocean Acidification Resources for Communicators and Educators

This new webinar series provides ocean acidification communication tools to formal & informal educators, and stakeholders across the country. One of its primary goals, is to promote a more integrated and effective ocean acidification education community by sharing ocean acidification education and communication activities virtually. With awareness of and access to these resources, the ocean acidification education and communication community will be able to utilize and continue to create cutting edge communication tools that incorporate current scientific and communication research.

This series is jointly sponsored by the NOAA National Marine Sanctuaries and Ocean Acidification Program.
