Kirsten Massebeau's curator insight, December 1, 2013 8:49 PM

these plans put a port right in the middle of an at-risk beluga population.

Marian Locksley's curator insight, March 11, 2014 10:14 AM

Meanwhile, the deepwater St. Lawrence Estuary beluga population is a species at risk of extinction and is protected under the Species At Risk Act. According to Fisheries and Oceans Canada, the St. Lawrence is home to an estimated 1,000 belugas.

 

Because of the species’ protected status, the federal government has to protect its habitat.

 

“The building of that deepwater wharf will bring a lot of noise and traffic,” he says.

“If the sound is more distant, there will be some behavioural response. The heaviest response could be leaving the area,” Michaud explains.

“It could mask their usable communication, their activity for finding food or for navigating. High sounds, very powerful sounds... they could have even physical damage.”

somewhere between a regular whale and a manatee. These lovely and graceful white creatures need our protection.

Marian Locksley's insight:

Chunks of seashore are vanishing from South Carolina's Cape Romain National Wildlife Refuge as rising ocean levels and storms chew up the remote, unspoiled beaches some animals depend on for survival.

It's a trend threatening the future of rare sea turtles and birds that frequent the shores of Cape Romain's barrier islands -- and there's little indication the erosion will stop anytime soon, federal officials say.

Marian Locksley's insight:

Mountains of water are rolling towards us, covered in an army of huge breaking waves. Winds hitting 75mph are blowing the surface of the ocean away, and whatever is left is white with foam. The ship is facing directly into the wind, riding over the top of it all, juddering and bumping as it clings to the place where the sea touches the sky.


On the bridge, the chief scientist is grinning as though all his Christmases have come at once. After four years of planning, this has turned out better than we dared hope. All that violence outside means that the ocean is doing something important – taking a really, really deep breath. And we are here to study it.

#BluefinTuna Catch #Quota Maintained as #Shark Limits Rejected #ICCAT | Rescue our Ocean's & it's species from Man's Pollution! | Scoop.it
Members of the International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas heeded calls by environmental groups and left bluefin tuna catch quotas in the Atlantic unchanged, while rejecting proposals to impose the first quotas for some shark...
Marian Locksley's insight:

The ICCAT had also been urged by environmental groups to establish catch limits for the short-fin mako, the fastest-swimming shark, and blue sharks, to prevent overfishing of the species, and strengthen a ban on the de-finning of the predators. Those would have been the first catch quotas for a shark species.

“They had really strong scientific advice to build off this year,” Luke Warwick, a shark specialist at Pew, said in an interview. “They did nothing. Governments really didn’t even get into the detailed debate.”
