Marian Locksley's insight:
Already, top international NGO Greenpeace has vehemently opposed seabed mining, releasing a report last year in an effort to raise awareness. In its 20 page report, it stated that seabed mining "poses a major threat to our oceans", adding that "all types of seabed mining will kill whatever can't escape the mineral extraction operations". It also highlighted the risk for accidents if an ore barge were to sink, as well as the potential of oil or hydraulic fluid leak from machinery on the seafloor.

AUSTRALIAN researchers are pumping millions of ­dollars into researching “the fertiliser of the sea” in order to protect some of Antarctica’s most majestic creatures.
Marian Locksley's insight:

High-acidity water, created by highly acidic carbon ­dioxide, dramatically reduces the hatching of krill eggs and by the end of the century we could have only have half the ‪#‎krill‬ eggs hatching. By the end of 2300 we could only have 2 per cent of the eggs hatching.”

PIRatE Lab's curator insight, August 16, 10:42 AM

A good video that is difficult to watch with a straight face.  When SeaWorld says this massive, multimillion dollar investment is not in reaction to the film Blackfish or animal rights activists...well, you should just watch it.

 

San Diego will be the first park to have its whale enclosure expanded. There is also increasing pressure to find a "cove" or "embayment" wherein captive Orcas can be "retired" rather than set free in a world they know nothing about.
