Climate change affects our oceans - and us - in so many ways.
Ice sheets are melting, causing sea levels to rise. This is flooding our coastlines, harming important ecosystems and cities. It also speeds up saltwater intrusion, making our water less drinkable.
This microsite was made by an Heir to Our Oceans focusing on the impacts of climate change on our oceans. Heirs to Our Oceans is a group of 9-17 year olds around the world who are starting a global movement and making a feature-length movie about the problems facing our oceans, how they will affect our generation, and solutions to these problems.
