The Great Science Share 2020

World Oceans Day inspires our questions this week – it’s a time to celebrate ocean life and think about how we can protect it. This year there is a focus on calling for all world leaders to commit to protecting 30% of oceans by 2030. What can we do to protect this natural environment?

Share your questions about our oceans and how we can look after them.
