Dr. Lisa Lobel of Wheelock College explains how our trash impacts ocean creatures and how kids can help protect the sea.

This animated adventure follows a five-year-old boy and his relationship with Ponyo, a goldfish princess who longs to become human after falling in love with him.

The daughter of the king of the ocean, goldfish Ponyo, has all the magic of the sea at her disposal. When five-year-old Sosuke befriends the spunky little fish, a special connection sparks between the two children, and Ponyo uses her father's magic to transform herself into a human girl. But having a magical fish princess walking around on dry land causes a dangerous imbalance in the world. The two friends must seek help from the greatest powers in the ocean to make things right again. Acclaimed filmmaker Hayao Miyazaki (My Neighbor Totoro, Spirited Away) co-wrote and directed this anime film.
