Reading: Climate Change in the Bahamas

A comic book to understand the effects of climate change on our environment, and specifically, on conch shells, coral reefs, and integrated ecosystems.

Students will read about the possible effects of climate change in the Bahamas, and possible actions for adaption and mitigation, as explained by two schoolchildren.

Use this tool to help your students find answers to:

  1. How might climate change affect the availability of a conch snack, a popular dish in the Bahamas?
  2. What are the possible threats posed by climate change to coral reefs in the Bahamas?
