Human Impact

Human Impact

by Carole Garbuny Vogel
Learn how overpopulation, coastal development, and global warming have affected our oceans. Trace the imprint humans have made on the oceans' bounties — the dead zones, sick seas, and other symptoms of their failing health — and what this means to the future of life on Earth.
