Reading Time: 2 minutes

For this project, I chose to give write a letter to the largest ecosystem on our Earth – the ocean. The video explains the effects of the damaging on coral reefs around the world, and the major factors that are affecting the rise in the acidification of our oceans. Lastly, I noted ways on how to reverse the process in addition with our warming waters to protect the last little few patches of life that the ocean thrives off of for nutrients and sustainability. Please give it a watch!
