Greens question Coalition pledge to #monitor #Japanese #whaling fleet

Greens question Coalition pledge to #monitor #Japanese #whaling fleet | Rescue our Ocean's & it's species from Man's Pollution! | Scoop.it
The Sea Shepherd ship Bob Barker has left Hobart for its annual summer campaign against Japanese whaling in the Southern Ocean.
Marian Locksley's insight:

Senator Whish-Wilson joined hundreds of people lining a Hobart pier this morning to wave off the Bob Barker.

He questioned whether the Government would honour its pledge.

"We have a purpose-built Customs vessel that costs the taxpayer $150 million," he said.

"It is purpose-built for the Antarctic, it is ice-rated, it is sitting off topical waters on Christmas Island. It needs to be off Macquarie Island, not Christmas Island.

"I've got a photo of it during the week sitting in tropical waters. What's it doing there?

"[It needs to] not just monitor, but also to uphold Australian law, which is very clear that whaling is illegal in these waters."

A spokesman for the Environment Minister, Greg Hunt, says the Government stands by its commitment and will make an announcement in the coming days.

From Care2 petition::  Victory NYC Airports Stopped the killing:  http://www.care2.com/causes/victory-nyc-airports-stop-killing-snowy-owls.html

 

“What happened to the snowy owls last weekend at JFK, and what is likely happening to many other birds near airports that can be relocated instead of shot, is not only a real-world travesty, it is a legal failure,” said Michael Harris, director of the FoA’s Wildlife Law Program.

Hopefully as more owls continue to move in this winter, the Port Authority will keep its word and other airports will take note of the humane options that are available to keep all airborne travelers alive and safe.

Via Grant W. Graves
Marian Locksley's insight:

He said dolphin meat was available in some restaurants in the capital, but was "certainly not written on the menu". The best way to eat it, he recommended, was with "fresh onions, celery and tomato".

Italia Uno's report showed that clients who wanted dried dolphin fillet asked for it by a code name: the English word "black". Independent laboratory tests carried out on the meat the journalist bought in the restaurant and from the wholesaler confirmed it was from dolphins.

Fishermen told the TV team that the meat normally came from dolphins caught in nets intended for other species. The majority were already dead when pulled from the water.

But, said one of the fishermen, "if they aren't dead, they club [them] on the head". Asked whether dolphins were sometimes caught deliberately, one said they were: "If they know that dolphins are there, you (sic) cast the nets there."

Italian fishermen who catch dolphins are meant to hand over the carcasses to the coast guard. But according to the restaurant owner who catered for Italia Uno's investigator, there is a way round the rules.

#Dolphins Much Sicker After #BP #Spill: Study

#Dolphins Much Sicker After #BP #Spill: Study | Rescue our Ocean's & it's species from Man's Pollution! | Scoop.it
A year after BP's disastrous 2010 oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, a team of researchers found that dolphins in the vicinity of the spill showed major signs of sickness, a new study says.
Marian Locksley's insight:

According to a new peer-reviewed studypublished Wednesday in the journal Environmental Science & Technology, a team of government, academic and non-governmental researchers identified previously unseen health issues in bottlenose dolphins examined in August 2011 in Louisiana's Barataria Bay.

Researchers examined 32 dolphins, including 29 that received comprehensive physical and ultrasound examinations. Nearly half of the sampled population were identified as being in "guarded or worse" condition, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Another 17 percent were in poor or grave condition and "not expected to survive." Among the health problems were lung damage and low levels of adrenal stress-response hormones. A quarter of the dolphins were also underweight.

The researchers said the dolphins' symptoms resemble those of mammals in laboratory studies of oil exposure. "The decreased cortisol [hormone] response is something fairly unusual but has been reported from experimental studies of mink exposed to fuel oil," researchers said. "The respiratory issues are also consistent with experimental studies in animals and clinical reports of people exposed to petroleum hydrocarbons."
