To better understand the movements and behaviors of the world's biggest creatures, researchers at University of Washington have turned to an instrument normally used to measure the world itself.

Marian Locksley's insight:

 

 

Despite their size, whales are some of the least understood animals on Earth. Their global range and sheer mass makes them difficult to study. But understanding whale's swimming behaviors and feeding habits is of great interest to conservationists who want to keep whale populations healthy.

Marian Locksley's insight:

Leading Paleontologist Dr. Louise Leakey, and Sea Shepherd Conservation Society Board of Advisors member, is speaking out about her increasing concern for the dire state of the oceans and marine wildlife.


Along with Sea Shepherd’s founder Captain Paul Watson and other esteemed members of the science community, Dr. Leakey believes that species are deeply interconnected and rely on the existence of healthy whale populations, and once they are damaged, all human and animal kind will be in trouble.


“Humans are exploiting the oceans well beyond our means and we will see the end of species across the board purely as a result of human neglect.


Unless we can ensure the longtime survival of species within our oceans, we are going to find ourselves in a great deal of trouble,” Dr. Leakey said.

Marian Locksley's insight:

Across the Arctic, amid all this change, we are hearing stories of struggle and seeing signs of trouble — but also signs of emerging crusades for justice and resilience against the corporate powers that for too long have dictated our story.

Shell was forced to cancel its 2013 Arctic drilling plans after a series of failures and accidents plagued its 2012 drilling programme. Similarly, both Statoil and ConocoPhillips have both shelved plans to drill in the Arctic this year.

But beyond the oil companies, this has been a year of heroic stories for the Indigenous Peoples of the Arctic. A battle has been brewing with our allies in Russia, where RAIPON, the largest Indigenous organisation representing more than 40 Indigenous groups in Russia and the East, was ordered in November by the Russian Ministry of Justice to close its doors following what they deemed, “irregularities in its organisational statuses.” This stirred exactly the sort of international outrage that it warranted.

As expressed by Aili Kesketalo, the leading Sami politician from Norway, this challenged “the very foundation for international cooperation between Indigenous Peoples.”

In the end, after much outrage and complex politicking, this unjust decision was overturned. This marked a change in the story the Russian government was trying to tell, affirming an important lesson: that the Indigenous Peoples of the Arctic are powerful, and when united, represent an unparalleled threat to the current “business as usual” approach to Arctic management. In the words of RAIPON’s former First Vice President: Read more by clicking headline thxu

 

The irony is that Antarctica, which isn’t even home to human beings, is now protected. So how is it that the Arctic, home to millions of people, including some of the most precious and unique communities in the world, cannot secure the same protection where people need it most?
