Ocean Tracks

Ocean Tracks is an educational website that provides interactive maps and visualizations of oceanographic data to help people learn about the movement and behavior of marine animals. The website allows users to track the movements of tagged animals such as sea turtles, sharks, and whales, as well as view oceanographic data such as temperature, salinity, and chlorophyll concentration.

Ocean Tracks also includes lesson plans and activities for educators to use in the classroom. The website aims to increase awareness and understanding of ocean ecosystems and the animals that inhabit them. I can imagine this being a great source of data sets to engage with SEPs Analyzing and Interpreting Data and Using Math and Computational Thinking in the domain of life sciences. Definitely worth checking into and adding to your bookmarks. See the short video embedded below.
