This Week's Challenge*
Did you know???
*All ‘challenges’ must be undertaken with the supervision and at the discretion of a responsible adult
Oceans have absorbed 90% of the heat caused by climate change since the 1970s. Sea water is becoming more acidic as it absorbs excess carbon dioxide.
Oceans cover 71% of our planet and scientists estimate we have only identified around a 10th of the species that live in them.
80% of all goods traded globally will have travelled by sea. Shipping is responsible for at least 2.5% of global carbon emissions. Fuel used in shipping is one of the dirtiest, lowest grades of crude oil.
The ‘Seaweed Manifesto’, launched in June 2020, looks at the scope for seaweed to contribute to feeding the world, climate change mitigation and ecosystem support.
If your parent or carer is happy for you to do so, you could email us a photo of your challenge (no children in photos please) or post on Instagram #warrior4climate
