Here is an ArcGIS StoryMap that my group and I made discussing various ocean conservation topics such as ocean acidification, coral bleaching, and microplastics!

Doing this project on the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals has taught me that most problems relating to the ocean root from our society’s habits of overbuying and irresponsible consumption. It definitely makes me more aware of my own shopping patterns and in a way, guilts me into making responsible decisions. I have also been reminded to regard the ocean and it’s inhabitants as equals on this planet, and not so much as something completely separate of me. It is our duty as people on this Earth to take care of it and make sure that we all appreciate what it gives us.
