To all authorized researchers: This is your Human and other Species Research Project. Please pay careful attention to details and verify that all research has been properly documented and backed by factual statements and observations. 

This project is based on ENCODE findings, research and discovery (https://www.encodeproject.org/, 2018)

What is ENCODE?

"The ENCODE (Encyclopedia of DNA Elements) Consortium is an international collaboration of research groups funded by the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI). The goal of ENCODE is to build a comprehensive parts list of functional elements in the human genome, including elements that act at the protein and RNA levels, and regulatory elements that control cells and circumstances in which a gene is active."

Southern Sea Otter
Enhydra lutris
Include a title at the top that says the name of your species, common name and scientific name.
Include a picture of your species, write a caption that describes the picture. Put your caption in italics!

Write a short paragraph that tells your visitors what this website is all about.  Tell them about your school science project and why you chose this particular species to learn more about.

My name is Joe and I'm a 7th grade student in San Diego, California.  In my life science class, I had to do an endangered species project.  I decided to do my research on the Southern Sea Otter.  I chose this species because I was very interested in how such a cute animal could survive such harsh living conditions in the ocean.  This website will detail the Southern Sea Otter as a species and discuss why it became endangered and what we are doing to save it.
