  1. Hi Raymond!

    Great first post! You did a great job on introducing your topic and the importance/history of it. Perhaps in your future posts you could go more in depth of what you would like to accomplish throughout the entirety of the project as it goes along. Marine conservation is a very interesting topic and could go into many different directions whether you are planning to do an inquiry or action project.

    I look forward to your future posts!
