  1. Investigate the relationship between marine mammals and sonar technology. Does sonar present a significant threat to marine mammal health? If so, what are some potential actions to mitigate these effects?
  2. Global climate change caused by human activities has resulted in the rapid decline of sea ice coverage in the Arctic. Investigate the relationship between sea ice coverage and the health and survival of polar bears and other marine mammals. What are some current measures to conserve polar bears and their habitats?
