An educator might use this resource to:
examine data on marine mammal (seal and sea lion primarily) strandings along 600 miles of California coast from 1975-2016, thinking of this as an indirect measure of changing ocean conditions. This can be used to extrapolate how various changes in the ocean environment (i.e. periods of warm water temperatures, sea level rise) can impact marine mammal health.
