As more and more carbon dioxide enters our atmosphere, our natural environments respond differently. Where some regions may become hotter, and others may become cooler, our oceans become more acidic. Explore the infographic below to learn more about ocean acidification and how a small shift in ocean chemistry has a big impact for our marine organisms.

Our marine science fellow heads to Portugal to compare coastal strategies from the Pacific and Atlantic Coasts.
Did you know that sex is not distinctly defined among many animals? It often shifts in the most fluid of environments: the ocean.
Science shows that our seas are rising. When you add this to more frequent, severe rain, it’s easy to see how coastal communities are on the front lines of climate-change impacts.
A trip to Carkeek Park to test fish toxicity was a great chance for our chapter’s leaders to go deep on our work.
In honor of World Oceans Day, we’re joining the Seattle Aquarium for a beach cleanup. Join the charge at a coast near you!
We celebrate oysters and tackle climate change along the Hood Canal.
We are pleased to announce the Shellfish Growers Climate Coalition, a partnership with shellfish growers on both the East Coast and the West Coast to chart a course toward climate action and a low-carbon future.
The captial budget provided $12.5 million for funding for the Washington Coast Restoration Initiative. Through this initiative, coastal communities have developed important projects that address the region’s highest-priority restoration needs and put people to work restoring our lands and waters.
Sustainable seafood is not simply a fish balancing act. The livelihoods of communities that depend on fishing are also of critical importance. Read about Claire's dive into what corporations, academics, and coastal communities are doing to tackle fisheries sustainability.
Most of ocean plastic waste consists of everyday items: bottles, caps, straws, wrappers and bags. Yet, another proportion of this waste is more invisible: microplastics.
