Some scientists say the oceans are dying, choking on tons of plastic and other polluting debris and struggling to adapt to climate change. The ocean waters (seas and coastal) and marine life are struggling on many levels.

Ocean acidification, decimated fisheries due to overfishing, entangled marine fish and mammals, and climate change are just some of the challenges environmentalists are facing in their efforts to maintain healthy oceans.

The course discussion centers around plastic pollution because that is the single greatest threat to the oceans other than climate change. In this course, the state of the oceans is reviewed through descriptions of the major problems that must be dealt with on a global basis before they become insurmountable. The course ends with a presentation of some innovative approaches underway to clean up the oceans and protect marine life.
