Powerful Persuasion on the Plastic Problem Danika This lesson incorporates clips from Blue The Film as learning inspiration. In this lesson, students will explore rhetorical devices and their influence over audiences. They will consider ways individuals use language to communicate thoughts and opinions, by watching a short clip featuring perspectives about the impact of plastic. They will further develop their understanding of persuasion by studying the rhetorical devices and how they can be used to engage and persuade audiences. Students apply this knowledge to compare the use of rhetoric in two clip clips about plastic and its impact on the environment and ecosystems.

RESEARCH REVEALS MICROPLASTICS ENTERING THE FOOD WEB Danika For the first time, there is indisputable evidence that species at the bottom of the food web are mistaking plastic for food. According to a new study by Dr. Peter Ross, head of the Ocean Pollution Research Program at Vancouver Aquarium Marine Science Centre, tiny microscopic animals called zooplankton are ingesting plastic particles at an alarming rate. This could spell trouble for the entire aquatic food web.

Sitka Field Data Report Danika Monitoring biodiversity in an area can be much simpler with more eyes on the prize. If we train professional divers along with sport divers to hone their identification skills we can build reliable taxonomic databases for any area. We need to teach that small amounts of accurate data are more valuable than large amounts of data that are bloated with guesses. With proper data entry at the end of each dive, a database quickly grows into an important reference for comparison with past, present and future observations.

The Marine Biodiversity Project Danika Vancouver Aquarium, with the support of Sitka Foundation, is conducting a two-year biological monitoring program called Counting on Howe Sound as part of its commitment to researching and enhancing the health of the Howe Sound ecosystem. This initiative identifies and assesses marine species, while teaching our next generation of taxonomists how to identify the species who call the area home. We use this information to teach students and communities about the amazing natural community under the water right outside of their front doors, and to inspire them to keep learning more about marine biodiversity.
