The Pollution Problem

By Madeline, Charlie, and Ezra

The Issue: Increasing carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is causing the oceans to heat up. This is bad news for coral reefs and the animals that depend on them, such as animals with shells.

The Team: We chose this issue because pollution is a big problem that affects coral reefs, and making this video will help make people aware of it.
