Abstract: 

Science reveals that Earth's climate is changing dramatically due to human actions. We are already seeing devastating impacts of climate change, such as the melting of polar ice, which is happening faster than even the most dire predictions. Yet, efforts to educate people about climate change and mobilize actions to mitigate it have not been too successful. Despite strong scientific consensus, some people do not believe climate change is happening or if they do, they feel disempowered to make a difference. Why?

Climate Change Education: A Primer for Zoos and Aquariums by the Climate Literacy Zoo Education Network, reveals what some of the best minds know about climate change science, electronic media, psychology, learning sciences, communication, and interpretation. The book explores the links between these fields and provides valuable insights to everyone, especially zoos and aquariums, but also for museums and similar cultural institutions.
