2. If ice that is now on land begins to melt, how might this effect the puffins in Mantinicus Rock?
3. If the oceans become more acidic, how might this effect the puffins in Mantinicus Rock?
4. If the kinds of fish that live around Matinicus Rock change because the water is warmer, how might this effect the puffins there?
