Marian Locksley's insight:

 

        Why can't they 'fish' for debris thats destroying it's species!!!

 

                                          And governments pay.

 

                            Otherwise we're losing a battle here!

Wildlife wardens have been preparing to protect seals at Donna Nook in Lincolnshire from high tides.
Marian Locksley's insight:

Wildlife wardens are preparing to protect seals pups from high tides, after dozens died because of a tidal surge two years ago.

The pups died because the surge separated them from their mothers at Donna Nook, one of the largest grey seal reserves in the UK.

Rachel Shaw, from Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust, said this year's pups may need to be allowed to escape into sand dunes if the UK's predicted storms cause a similar emergency.

Visitors are being asked to stay away from the reserve this week.

The International Maritime Organization removed an exemption for fishing vessels from the IMO’s ship identification scheme, paving the way for mandatory identification numbers.
Marian Locksley's insight:

The IMO numbering scheme was introduced to enhance maritime safety and security; registered vessels carry the same unique indicator from construction to scrapping.


Originally established and maintained by Lloyd’s Register, numbers are currently administered on behalf of the IMO by IHS Fairplay.


It is widely regarded as the best available global vessel identification system, because each number is coupled with an independently managed data source on the vessel’s specifications, history, and ownership, which is continually updated and cross-checked against multiple sources. - See more at: http://www.pewenvironment.org/news-room/other-resources/UN-Body-Closes-Loophole-in-Fight-Against-Illegal-Fishing-85899522627#sthash.8BW8Ygwc.dpuf

Tracking fracking pollution
Science Daily (press release)
Dec. 3, 2013 — As a result of the fracking revolution, North America has overtaken Saudi Arabia as the world's largest producer of oil and gas.
Marian Locksley's insight:

Setting the bar

A team of geochemistry researchers affiliated with Concordia University, l'Université du Québec à Montréal, l'Institut national de la recherche scientifique, and the GEOTOP research group has just completed the first detailed study to examine the natural quality of groundwater prior to fracking.

Marian Locksley's insight:

These terrestrial fishes spend all their adult lives on land, on the rocks in the splash zone. They use a tail-twisting behavior to leap about.

Conservationists have published photos showing a pod of Bottlenose dolphins forced into a Japanese cove before they are butchered.
Marian Locksley's insight:

A family of 75-80 Bottlenose dolphins have been taken from the wild. Their fate has been sealed within the nets keeping them from freedom. The pod which includes juveniles will be held hostage within the Cove overnight, over 18 hours without food.

According to Professor Maciej Henneberg, a professor of anthropological and comparative anatomy from the School of Medical Sciences, humans have misunderstood animal intelligence.

Dredging set to swamp decades of Great Barrier Reef protection

Dredging set to swamp decades of Great Barrier Reef protection | Rescue our Ocean's & it's species from Man's Pollution! | Scoop.it
After decades of work, $200 million in taxpayer funding and even more from farmers' pockets, we finally have a rare good news story to tell about the Great Barrier Reef.
Marian Locksley's insight:

After decades of work, A$200 million in taxpayer funding and even more from farmers' pockets, we finally have a rare good news story to tell about the Great Barrier Reef. Thanks to an extraordinary effort, we have stopped at least 360,000 tonnes of sediment and large amounts of other agricultural run-off polluting Australia’s most famous natural wonder.

 

Yet all that effort to protect the reef looks like it’s about to be swamped.

 

140 million tonnes of marine sediment are proposed to be dredged during port development in the Great Barrier Reef over the next decade, according to my calculations from port development plans. Most of the dredge spoil will be dumped into the waters of the Great Barrier Reef, with the rest placed in reclamation areas on the coast within the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area.

Unlike other marine species, the corals are still capable of adapting under current circumstances of sea acidification.
Marian Locksley's insight:

The project is performed along the Gulf of California and the coast of the Mexican Pacific, where a natural acidification gradient exists. The scientist analyzed colonies of Poritesand Pocillopora, which are the more important species in the reefs of the Oriental Pacific Ocean.

 

Unlike other marine species, the corals are still capable of adapting under current circumstances of sea acidification, reveled by researchers at the Center of Biological Research of the Northeast (Cibnor). "The first models indicated that the coral reefs would disappear midcentury, but our study reveals that corals are adapting to the ocean's acidification that has increased since the industrial revolution," Eduardo Balart Páez said, head of research.
