      Our planet is home to wonderfully diverse natural habitats that support a huge range of life. But many of those places—and the species that rely on them—are under threat. Sufficiently protecting them requires a broad, multinational effort, which is why bodies such as the United Nations set conservation targets. While governments around the world have safeguarded large areas of land, . Protecting important ocean habitats from destructive fishing practices and pollution protects all marine life, from top predators to tiny zooplankton. Protecting marine habitat is a crucial part of Oceana’s international strategy to protect and restore ocean abundance, alongside other advocacy work to reduce bycatch and set responsible catch.

    Ask students to think about some of the different kinds of habitats in the world by naming some of the most common (desert, forest, ocean, jungle). Write Desert, Forest, Ocean, and Jungle on the board and ask students to think about each habitat and what animals and plants they might see in that habitat. AQUATIC HABITATS. The aquatic biome includes habitats around the world dominated by water. Aquatic ecosystems are divided into two main groups based on their salinity—freshwater habitats and marine habitats. Freshwater habitats are aquatic habitats with low levels of salt, less than one percent. They include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, swamps, wetlands, bogs and lagoons.

    Seafloor habitats in the deep ocean can be incredibly diverse environments covered with living architecture including corals and sponges. Like other three-dimensional structures, corals and sponges are essential for protecting marine species from predators and rough currents, as well as providing safe areas for breeding, nursing, spawning, feeding, and resting.

Grade –These texts do not focus on protecting habitats, but rather document the decline of the Earth's environment. The first book identifies oceans, marine life forms, and the many threats to their survival brought on by overfishing and : Anita Ganeri. Get this from a library.

Protecting ocean habitats. [Anita Ganeri] -- Discusses why oceans are so important to the world's ecosystem, what kinds of animals and plants live in the ocean, the current threats to oceans, and how these threats are being addressed.

About Habitats Oceans covers just about the different types of fish, mammals,living plants, the ocean floor and its formation. It contains interesting and fun facts about the ocean. Most ocean animals live near the top of the water. There are mountains at the bottom of the ocean. Some ocean animal eat meat and some eat plants/5(8).

Conservationist, hunter, family man, and politician, Teddy Roosevelt commanded the respect and admiration of many who marveled at his energy, drive and View Product.

The Ocean Life theme unit within Scholastic Explorers studies how human activities impact two specific ocean animals — sea turtles in Costa Rica and dolphins in New Zealand. In conjunction with the Earthwatch Institute, students will visit two field sites.

The first. Temperature, ocean depth, and distance from the shore determine the types of plants and animals living in an area of the ocean. These regions are called habitats. Coral reefs are one type of habitat. When tiny animals called polyps die, their skeletons harden so other polyps can live on top of them.

Find fiction and nonfiction children’s books, activities, and educational apps about homes and animal habitats. Create text sets for elementary classrooms, homeschooling, and summer reading (to help prevent the summer slide).

Oceans. Under the Deep Blue Sea (Grades K-2) This lesson gives students the opportunity to explore oceans and ocean life. After locating the earth’s major oceans on a world map, students will “dive underwater” to discover the plants and animals that live in the sea.

Perfect for reports, Exploring Habitats provides an in-depth look at habitats around the world, including detailed information about the animals in each habitat- their characteristics, life cycles, food chains, and how they adapt to their physical surroundings. Each book concludes with a discussion of relevant environmental issues.5/5(1).

Trace the shape several times on writing paper (lined or blank) and cut out the shapes for book pages. You can write a fact on each page about the animal whose shape you are using or put a different plant or animal on each page for a collection of sea-life facts. You can also include tips on protecting the ocean habitat.

Illustrate each page. Protecting and preserving the habitats that wildlife need in order to survive runs parallel to protecting the future of humanity. We depend directly on natural habitats for essential, irreplaceable ecosystem services and on key species, such as pollinators, for countless needs and benefits, but indirectly on all other species for the simple reason that everything connects.

Milwaukee, WI: Gareth Stevens Pub., Status: Available. Protecting important ocean habitats from destructive fishing practices protects all marine life, from the top predators to tiny zooplankton.

PRESERVING SPECIAL PLACES. Because of the important roles these places play in supporting healthy fish populations, these habitats warrant special protection.

Our oceans are in more trouble than ever before. Right now it is estimated that up to 12 million metric tons of plastic—everything from plastic bottles and bags to microbeads—end up in our oceans each ’s a truckload of trash every minute.

Traveling on ocean currents, this plastic is now turning up in every corner of our planet, from Florida beaches to uninhabited Pacific islands. Habitats. Learn about the different natural environments of plants and animals.

From the depths of the ocean to the top of the highest mountain, habitats are places where plants and animals live. Learn about these unique regions of our planet. Habitats Habitat information, links, and photo gallery are among several features of this website. Nature Bytes Video For students who would like to link to video clips about habitat geology, plants, birds, and animals, this website has much to offer.

The clips are narrated and are focused on habitats in the Southern California region. Caves. From the Pacific Ocean to the Gulf of Mexico, the 2,mile U.S.-Mexico border passes through regions rich in biological diversity and communities engaged in conservation.

For decades, people have teamed up to restore habitat and at-risk wildlife, to keep linkages intact and to protect large natural areas. Books shelved as habitat: Listen to Our World by Bill Martin Jr., Cactus Hotel by Brenda Z.

Diving in to learning about where animals live -- like our recent layers of the ocean zones project for kids -- is a wonderful way to inspire an interest in animals and their environment.

40 Animal Habitat Project Ideas & Activities.NOAA practices habitat protection nationwide. Priority areas include rivers with sea-going fish, wetlands and estuaries, coral reefs, and large-scale bays and watersheds.

We also explore and protect coral habitat in the deep sea, which is the least explored place on Earth. Our Key Initiatives. Coastal wetlands Deep-sea corals and shallow corals. The air we breathe: the ocean produces over half of the world's oxygen and absorbs 50 times more carbon dioxide than our atmosphere.

Climate regulation: covering 70% of the Earth's surface, the ocean transports heat from the equator to the poles, regulating our climate and weather patterns. Transportation: 76% of all U.S. trade involves some form of marine transportation.
