One fish, two fish, red fish… no more fish! Importance of Marine Protected Areas
The COSIA (Communicating Ocean Sciences to Informal Audiences) program at CalPoly San Luis Obispo has created curricula designed to convey ocean science concepts in informal learning settings such as aquariums, interpretive centers, and public outreach events. One of these curricula focuses on California’s network of MPAs and how MPAs can ameliorate problems such as overfishing. This lesson plan guides teachers and facilitators through a series of interactive activities, and includes resources on the science of MPAs.
