Impact of Climate Change on Hawaiian Monk Seals Activity 3: Seals, Corals and Dollars

The Hawaiian monk seal's population is declining, and it's up to humans to help them out; But how? Learners examine all the facts surrounding these seals, including the importance of the coral reefs and rapidly changing climates. In small groups, they research several reference websites to compose a group paper focused on a few prompts. They use their paper to engage in a class discussion on commercial and global impact on deep-sea, precious coral, and monk seal habitats.
