Hi Katie,

I’ve seen images and articles in recent days about the ‘marine heatwave’ that is currently happening in Irish waters. We are looking at sea temperatures that are 3-4 degrees above average for this time of the year. Given the projections you have listed in your post, this is quite worrying.

Having so many facts and statistics is useful, as it allows students to see the impact that climate change could have on their own area as they grow up. Living near the seaside has many advantages, and getting the children invested in this field is really important, as their behaviours may have a positive impact on the wider area/community.
