There are multiple impacts of climate change to our ocean.  These include ocean warming, more frequent and intense storms, loss of marine and shoreline habitat, sea-level rise, sea ice melt, climate variability, changing ocean circulation and hypoxia.

Together, these impacts are causing harm by displacing people, damaging coastal communities and property, decreasing food security and impacting jobs.

These changing ocean conditions have combined impacts and threatening ecosystem services that humans depend on.
