Interpreters at aquariums, museums, nature centers, zoos and other informal learning centers are trusted to be purveyors of information. As we develop skills for communicating about global-scale issues, we have a responsibility to ensure the information we share is accurate.
Interpreters do not need to know it all. Having a good understanding of a few key points about climate science is enough to begin. In this area of the website we have gathered information and activities useful in training interpreters about key fundamentals.
Review these pages and share your comments about what you find useful as you engage in training interpreters. We would also love to know if there are questions about the science of climate and ocean change that are not addressed here.
