    Challenge Question #2
    "What is upwelling and how does it effect the ocean food

    Upwelling is the movement/distribution of food in the ocean
    that influences the ammount of nutrients into coastal waters
    and greatly increases the production of food for many marine
    organisms. It affects the ocean food chains by making different
    animals go to different places for different foods that each
    individual animal eats.

    My full name is Ashley Lynn Hawkins. I'm 12 years old and in
    the seventh grade. The reason I choose to do this research
    about whales is because they always been my favorite animal. I
    like the Orca's the most because to me they are the most
    interesting marine animal. I collect whale items such as books,
    shirts, pictures, and I even have a tape which has a recording
    of whales.
