Hi, I’m Luke, and I live in Ireland. I love marine biOLogy. My favorite animals are seals. Every summer, I watch them play in the Atlantic Ocean. I am also interested in porpoises, basking sharks, and sea birds.

Did you know that the ocean is made up of many different communities called ecosystems? All living things in an ecosystem depend on each other. There are many ecosystems in the ocean, like the sea-floor , kelp forests , estuaries , polar seas , and mangrove forests .

PLAY: Think & Link

Explore three marine ecosystems to learn how different organisms depend on each other!
