  • Shell-forming animals like corals, crabs, oysters and urchins are getting hit first because ocean acidification robs seawater of the compounds these creatures need to build shells and skeletons, impairing their development and, ultimately, their survival.
  • If shellfish populations collapse, the animals that eat them will also suffer, with ripple effects throughout the ocean's food web.
  • Coral reefs critical to the protection of coastlines across tropical and subtropical parts of the world will disappear as the rate of erosion exceeds the rate at which corals can rebuild.
  •  Important planetary ecosystems, such as coral reefs  are on the front lines of the acidification crisis.
  • In the north and south polar regions, marine plankton will be lost; some are already growing thinner and weaker shells.
  •  Important planetary ecosystems such as polar regions are on the front lines of the acidification crisis.
  • If ocean acidifications continues to rise, there will be devastating effects on a vast numbers of species, from small shell-building oysters and reef fish to crabs, whales and sea otters.
