Coastal Habitats

Coastal Habitats occur where land and ocean meet. 

These regions provide habitat for a variety of unique and often endangered species while providing humans with a multitude of ecosystems services.  In the Coastal Habitat POD we highlight three unique coastal habitat ecosystems: Wetlands, Mangroves and Coral Reefs.  Each of these contain information, activities, lesson plans, NGSS alignment, supplemental materials and more on the following topics: Habitat and Adaptations, Environmental Importance, The Changing Climate and Shipping/Navigation.   Emphasizing these four topics provides a fundamental background on each coastal habitat in the context of real-world application.
