Ocean Acidification

Ocean acidification is often called global warming’s evil twin. And rightly so! It is a much less discussed aspect of global climate change, which causes oceans all around the world to gradually become more and more acidic. Similar to other aspects of climate change, it is caused by the excess of carbon dioxide in our atmosphere. 

Ocean acidification threatens many forms of marine life which will cause negative effects throughout the ecosystem. We need to protect our oceans! Play this quiz to earn points to a SEED, and participate in reforesting the world.
