STUDENT ACTIVITY - Ocean acidification and eggshells. In this activity, students observe how chicken eggs can be used to simulate the potential effects of increasing ocean acidity on marine animals with calcium carbonate shells or skeletons, for example, bryozoans and cockles.
The powerful before-and-after photographs below were shared as evidence of ocean acidification at the 2012 International Coral Reef Symposium in Australia. Please help spread awareness about ocean acidification by pinning these before-and-after photos and starting the conversation about ocean conservation. #OceanAcidification
