Pollution of the watershed
Target Group: Middle School
Subject: Mangroves & Wetlands
Ocean Literacy Principle: 5,6
Students get a part of the map of their watershed and think about which sources of pollution might occur in this area.
Students think about how run-off water can be polluted, for instance through garbage that people throw on the street or insecticides of the rice. How can these sources be reduced? You can find the activity on page 75 of the Educator's Guide.
