Suquamish students participate in national summit on ocean and climate issues

Suquamish Tribal Early College High School students participated this week in Third Student Summit on the Ocean & Coasts in Washington D.C. The students made a presentation at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History on ocean acidification in Puget Sound and its impact on Pacific Northwest Tribes, as this video explains.

The students are working on a project to raise community awareness on how ocean acidification impacts the Suquamish community–economically, environmentally, socially, and culturally.
