BREAKINGnews #Dolphins butchered for #Sharkbait in #illegal hunt off the coast of #Peru | Now is the Time to Help our Oceans & it's Species ! | Scoop.it
Read Dolphins butchered for shark bait in illegal hunt off the coast of Peru latest on ITV News.
Marian Locksley's insight:

The meat is also traded in exchange for petrol or fishing lines, according to a fisherman who previously took part in the hunt. Jose, not his real name, said a culture of secrecy surrounded the practice.

#GPStrackers shed light on lives of little #penguins Where #Taronga penguin ate 22 pilchards in 5 minutes! | Now is the Time to Help our Oceans & it's Species ! | Scoop.it

Australian researchers are strapping satellite tracking technology to little penguins to shed light on their marine environment. A team of scientists from Macquarie University has teamed up with researchers at Sydney's Taronga Zoo to carry out the study.

 

The researchers are attaching GPS trackers and accelerometers to the penguins to work out where they are searching for food. It is technology commonly found in most smartphones, with the accelerometer monitoring the penguin's orientation and movement. The scientists are studying the zoo's captive colony as well as the wild population found at Montague Island off the far south coast of NSW.

 

The project is part of a larger multispecies study aiming at identifying important marine hotspots and improving the management and zoning of marine parks. The scientists are looking at how suitable certain breeding sites will be in the future due to food availability.

 

Macquarie University PhD student Gemma Carroll is leading the research. "If we can understand where they're feeding now and why those areas are important places for penguins to feed we can understand how, if the environment changes, those places that might be important might change as well," Ms Carroll said.

 

Taronga Zoo's David Slip says the species is extremely vulnerable to habitat change. "Managing the resources are really important to make sure there's enough for seals and penguins but also enough for us," Dr Slip said. "If their food moves off shore then they have to go further and it means it's a lot longer to get back to their chicks."

 

Macquarie University's Professor Rob Harcourt, who specialises in marine predators, says the research provides a window into an unknown world. "By working out exactly where they're going, what they're feeding upon and what the constraints are of those feeding then we'll be able to provide a lot more information," he said.

 

The study has already uncovered some interesting findings on the penguins' not so little appetites. One Taronga little penguin ate 22 pilchards in five minutes. The scientists are looking to collect at least another two years of data on the wild animals. Their hope it that the project will eventually be expanded into the long term to help measure oceanographic change in South Eastern Australia.

Monomoy Wildlife Refuge plan seeks 'balanced'approach
Wicked Local Orleans
Monomoy is due for a new 15-year management plan and yesterday the U.S.
Marian Locksley's insight:

The sands are ever shifting in Monomoy National Wildlife Refuge; connections and disconnections to the mainland, sandbars and cuts, channels and dunes are there then vanish in the mist.


Monomoy was established in 1944 as a refuge for migratory birds. It covers 8,321 acres of open ocean, salt marsh, freshwater swamps and ponds, sand dunes and beach, 3,244 acres of which are officially wilderness. The world’s second largest nesting colony of common terns (8,000 pairs) calls it home.

The world's reefs are hotbeds of biological diversity, including over 4,500 species of fish. A new study shows that the ancestors of these fish colonized reefs in two distinct waves, before and after the mass extinction event about 66 million years ago that wiped out the dinosaurs.

How to provide for indigenous and other peoples with a rare animal as a food source and sustain their diet? (As well as make sure we don’t have another extinction on our hands).
Marian Locksley's insight:

Far be it for anybody to prescribe what people should eat. When it comes to changing diet, though, it must be permissible to persuade local people to adopt better habits. The steep decline in populations since 2008 is traceable to over-fishing. As there is no limit on this "take, obviously there will have t be a severe one. Self regulation is impossible when there is insufficient contact between turtle eaters, turtle catchers and government. - See more at: http://www.earthtimes.org/conservation/help-green-turtles/2584/#sthash.Gdi05POT.dpuf

News: The Diving in Japan Series - Part 3- Diving for Debris: Tohoku's Underwater Recovery Efforts - Dive Report

News: The Diving in Japan Series - Part 3- Diving for Debris: Tohoku's Underwater Recovery Efforts - Dive Report | Now is the Time to Help our Oceans & it's Species ! | Scoop.it

The scale and destruction of the Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami were beyond anyone's expectations. Three years on, the disaster is still very much on people's minds with images of the giant wave and destruction still vivid. In the months immediately after the disaster, I began looking online for volunteer work that involved diving or anything marine-related when one day I came across Sanriku Volunteer Divers, a group that's been diving almost everyday since March 2011 to continue restoring the affected regions.


Via AimForGood
Marian Locksley's insight:

 With about 3,000 volunteers, both Japanese and foreign, debris continues to be removed and much of the large items have been successfully cleared away. Because of slightly strict regulations among some fisheries-related groups, it has been harder to access and clean some areas than others but on the whole there is progress.
