Climate Change and Ecosystems

Climate change affects humans and wildlife alike, but in different ways. The Climate Crisis is dramatically impacting marine habitats on a global scale, from sea floor to seafood. Millions of humans depend on the oceans for food and livelihood, and many species, particularly birds, rely on healthy marine ecosystems for their survival and reproduction.

ZSL has partnered with the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) to create free, online learning resources (as part of their FieldSight programme), to support teachers to engage Key Stage 3 and 4 students with the impacts of climate change on marine ecosystems.  

CLIMATE CHANGE RESOURCES AND TEACHING MATERIAL

Featuring scientist interviews, real-world examples and data, and student activities, explore the work being done to understand the impacts of climate change, protect fisheries, and ensure humans and wildlife can coexist in an ever-changing world.

These resources were made possible through a collaboration with the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS), Sustainable Fisheries Greenland, and Polar Seafood.
