Going Blue: A Teen Guide to Saving Earth's Ocean, Lakes, Rivers & Wetlands, 2nd Edition (Paperback)
Whether it's in a drinking glass, flowing downstream, or miles underground, water is everywhere. And it's essential for life on Earth. But our water planet is in crisis. Going Blue educates teens about our water crisis and gives them tools and inspiration to transform their ideas into action.
With color photos and illustrations, along with practical suggestions and activities, readers follow stories of young people around the world addressing water concerns and learn about issues such as clean water access, coral reef damage, runoff pollution, trash islands, factory fishing, and bottled water.
The second edition of Going Blue includes:
- current statistics and updated facts
- new stories about real teens
- a focus on restoration and sustainability
- COVID's impact on ocean trash
- information about setting up a hydration station at school
- updates on the restoration efforts ten years after the Gulf oil spill and on the Flint water crisis
