GR:  Climate scientists such as James Hansen (http://wp.me/p26kDO-7c2) and biologists such as E.O. Wilson (http://wp.me/p26kDO-7ZO) believe we are in the midst of an emergency.  More than climate change, we are reducing habitat through construction, farming, and grazing; we are aiding the takeover by invasive species (http://wp.me/p26kDO-4we), we are eliminating fresh water supplies for wildlife, and we are polluting the land, air, and water.  Where is the emergency response?

GHOST FISHING: Derelict fishing nets have turned the bottom of the sea into a death trap

GHOST FISHING: Derelict fishing nets have turned the bottom of the sea into a death trap | conservation & antipoaching | Scoop.it

GHOST FISHING: 

Quartz, August 14, 2014

DERELICT FISHING NETS HAVE TURNED THE BOTTOM OF THE SEA INTO A DEATH TRAP.

Each year, at least 640,000 tonnes of nets and other fishing gear goes overboard and never comes back. But just because it’s lost to the sea doesn’t mean that derelict gear stops doing its jobs. The lobster pots, crab traps and dense thickets of nets that litter the sea bottom keep snaring fish and other animals for years or even decades after they go missing.
     It’s impossible to estimate how many marine animals are killed each year by “ghost fishing,” as the problem is known. However, the mosaic of local reports suggests staggering numbers—many of them of commercially valuable or endangered species. In Puget Sound, ghost gear is thought to kill more 3.5 million animals a year, including nearly 25 seals, porpoises and other marine mammals a week.  http://qz.com/247942/derelict-fishing-nets-have-turned-the-bottom-of-the-sea-into-a-death-trap-2/

▶  JUST $200 PER FISHING VESSEL COULD SAVE THOUSANDS OF ALBATROSSES FROM INDUSTRIAL FISHING GEAR. The commercial fisheries aren’t going to stop their business for the seabirds.  it’s all too easy for a seabird to get caught up in the fishing gear that trails behind a fishing boat, and when they do, it’s usually fatal. In 2004-2005, an estimated 15,500 birds were killed that way off of South Africa. Pelagic albatrosses and petrels are particularly hard-hit,  http://conservationmagazine.org/2014/05/just-200-per-fishing-vessel-could-save-thousands-of-albatrosses/
