You'll learn about marine plants and animals like coral, phytoplankton, krill, fish, eels, mollusks, dolphins, and whales. See how oil spills and other forms of pollution can change ocean habitats, and how endangered fish can affect food chains and ocean life. What can you do to protect ocean environments?
