Avian cholera is unrelated to human cholera, and has probably been in Alaska for eons, quietly causing die-offs in birds when large number of waterfowl congregate. Once infected, birds die within 24 hours.

Marian Locksley's insight:

“Fisheries crime is not constrained by borders and is commonly carried out by transnational organized networks. Norway is deeply concerned about its global effects. We need an international, coordinated response to effectively tackle these networks, and I welcome the good cooperation we have established with Australia and New Zealand via INTERPOL,” said Norway’s Minister of Fisheries, Elisabeth Aspaker.

Marian Locksley's insight:

Existence in this dark, dynamic, sometimes toxic world is precarious. Whole populations with no capacity to run or crawl or swim to safety are snuffed out when the geyser sustaining them spontaneously splutters or stops as the earth’s crust spreads and shifts. Scientists call these “natural catastrophic events”.


The fact that they happen regularly is enlisted by proponents of deep sea mining to support their cause – nature herself mercilessly devastates these sites, and yet somehow life reconstitutes and endures.

#Microplastic pollution #confirmed to be a threat to #Marine #biodiversity ! | Rescue our Ocean's & it's species from Man's Pollution! | Scoop.it
New research confirms scientists' predictions that microplastic pollution could severely affect marine biodiversity and the health of our oceans (RT @Seasaver: Microplastic #pollution confirmed to be a threat to marine #biodiversity
Marian Locksley's insight:

A wide range of marine life has now been found to ingest microplastic particles – including mussels, worms, fish and even plankton (which underpins the whole marine food chain). Microplastics are also known to concentrate toxic pollutants which have previously been washed into our oceans – including DDT and PCBs – up to one million times background levels.
