Introduction to week 3

Hi, and welcome to week three of the Future Learn open course Life below Water. My name is Dr. Christopher Clemente, and I’m a research scientist at the University of the Sunshine Coast, Australia. This week, we will explore the impacts humans have had on life below the water. We will explore ideas like invasive species in waterways, the global impacts of marine debris, how climate change can cause species to shift range, and how marine vertebrates can be used as climate sentinels to monitor this impact. So get ready for another incredible week of learning about the amazing world underwater.
