Educational Resource: Two Minute Videos on Our Oceans

The United Nations Environmental Programme (UNEP) has recently released a series of short two minute videos on ocean habitats. These short videos provide excellent information designed specifically for children, thanks to cartoonist Jim Toomey. According to a press release from UNEP, "Using animation and humor, the six videos in the Toomey series, provide in clear and simple language, information about cutting-edge science and policy issues regarding our oceans, their importance to human well-being and the challenges facing our oceans. They address a wide range of ocean topics including: blue carbon, the true value of our oceans, the impacts of climate change, as well as threats such as marine litter."

Check out the UNEP website here for the full list of videos and information.
