Description:

This lab activity introduces students to Marine Protected Areas (MPAs). In Part A, students read about what MPAs are, what purposes they serve, and how they are classified. In Part B, they watch the film Ocean Oasis, about one of the world's top conservation priorities, the Gulf of California (also known as the Sea of CortÃs). This tiny strip of sea has historically been one of the richest and most productive marine ecosystems in the world, but today faces many of the same threats that are destroying ocean health worldwide. The film takes students on a journey to the Sea of CortÃs and Baja California peninsula with stunning images and compelling messages for the preservation of both ocean and desert.
