Deep Look: See Sea Slugs Scour Seagrass by the Seashore


Eelgrass sea hares may look like lazy, zebra-striped spoonfuls of jello, but these sea slugs are actually environmental heroes. Their voracious appetite for algae helps keep underwater meadow ecosystems in balance–which is great news for sea otters. Choose a plant or animal species. Then, research other living things in that ecosystem. Describe the impact on the ecosystem if the population of the plant or animal you chose increased or decreased.
