EE, Ocean, & Water Conservation Infographics

It’s no secret that a picture speaks a thousands words. But, when you couple words and pictures (with numbers, arrows, charts, etc.) you get quite an impact. If you’re a regular reader of the BCS blog you already know I’m fond of infographics. So I decided to pull together the ones found on BCS, as well as other places. You’ll see this list follows the general themes found on BCS: marine science, water/ocean conservation, as well as connecting with nature. I hope you enjoy browsing and a special thanks to all the organizations that have produced these powerful resources. To check out the collective visual of most of these infographics please check out my EE, Ocean, & Water Conservation Infographics Pinterest board. Please email or let me know on Twitter  (@bcsanswers) if you have another one that could be added to the list.

  1. My family is going to Seattle and Tofino on Vancouver Island at the end of next week. We have boys and 9. Do you think you could explain the different types of seabirds and shorebirds that we will see, you know like gulls, terns, plovers, wading birds, etc? I saw your explanation of the difference in gulls and terns and that was great. But I am wondering if you could include all of the major families of seabirds and shorebirds. Thank you!!

  2. What a fantastic trip. I hope you find this post to be a useful guide for your sons.
