Final Blog Assignment


With your new understanding of our connection to the ocean, you are going to create a blog demonstrating the concepts you have learned in this course.


On the Ocean Literacy Course Blog page you will create a blog about a current issue in ocean health and conservation. You may be as broad or specific as you like in your topic choice, as long as you demonstrate an understanding of how the ocean is all connected, how it influences us as humans, and the influence that we have over the ocean.

Your blog can take any form that you like. It could be a news article or a how-to manual. Whatever method of delivery inspires you most

Here are some examples of potential blog topics. You may also come up with your own topic that is not on the list.

  • The Pacific Garbage Patch
  • Unsustainable Fishing Practices
  • Melting Sea Ice
  • The Blue Finned Tuna
  • Environmental Impact of Ocean Exploration
  • Hurricanes and cyclones
  • Evidence of ocean evolution
  • Alternative sources of energy
  • Preparing a sustainable dinner
  • Going on an ocean exploration
  • The life cycle of a plastic bag

Your blog should be between 200 to 500 words and include either image(s) and/or video(s) as visual support for your topic. There is an example posted under the Blog tab now to serve as your guide. Submit your blog HERE
