Pacific Currents Spring 2011

Arctic & Antarctic: Our Polar Regions in Peril

Learn how warmer temperatures in the Arctic and Antarctic are causing environmental changes that affect the regions’ plants, animals, and people.

In this issue, read about several of the animal species recently added to the Aquarium’s collections for the Arctic & Antarctic: Our Polar Regions in Peril exhibit opening in May. This issue of Pacific Currents also focuses on climate change and includes an overview of the Aquarium’s programs on sea level rise as well as a list of ways families can reduce their carbon footprints. News highlights include professional development programs in the Aquarium’s education department and data collected during Aquarium whale-watch trips. Kids Corner features a craft that allows kids to match Arctic and Antarctic animals to their homes in the North or South Poles.
