The rapid decline of the world's coral reefs appears to be accelerating, threatening to destroy huge swathes of marine life unless dramatic action is swiftly taken, a leading ocean scientist has warned.

Globalization is breaking down barriers—also for plants and animals on the lookout for new homes. Rivers are also changing, in particular through the introduction of non-native species, often brought in by passing ships. In the Danube River, scientists have been observing a fish species conquering a new habitat and creating a totally new ecosystem in the process.

Published on 19 Sep 2013


In August of 2013, Sea Shepherd Australia Director Jeff Hansen visited the town of Broome, in Western Australia, to visit the community that fought alongside Sea Shepherd during Operation Kimberley Miinimbi, which ensured the protection of the worlds largest Humpback whale nursery off the coast of James Price Point.


During his trip, Jeff visited James Price Point, spent time with many of the groups and locals that fought hard for the protection of their land, spent a morning out at sea with a newborn Humpback whale and its mother and encountered a washed-up juvenile Humpback whale.


Sea Shepherd Australia was also able to host the local community one evening, and presented videos documenting the work that Sea Shepherd carries out not only in Australian waters, but in the Galapagos, the Gulf of Mexico, and Antarctica.

However, where the flow of trade may incur so many ton-miles, it could be that the next generation of shipping is focused on exploitation of the seas.
Marian Locksley's insight:

The much quoted fact that no vessel, to date, with armed guards on board has been hijacked is a compelling selling point. While it is true that armed guards have been a popular, successful and widely used service, the fact remains that this is simply one small aspect of the capabilities which maritime security can bring to bear. Armed guards are simply a specific form of protection and deterrent against a specific threat – namely Somali pirates.

We need every school in the country to adopt some sort of plastic pollution education like the Plastic and Recycling Awareness Curriculum we created so we can start to see a reduction in these types of instatnces:  http://onemoregeneration.org/educational-program-info/

How Deep is The CR Shark Finning Rabbit Hole? A Commentary from our founder @CaptPaulWatson http://t.co/d1kFrPzUYa Pls RT
Marian Locksley's insight:

COMMENTARY FROM OUR FOUNDER CAPTAIN PAUL WATSON

After years of patiently investigating and exposing the corruption in Costa Rica, my efforts are now slowly beginning to pay off and it is now becoming quite obvious that the charges against me in Costa Rica are politically motivated.

In some ways, the fact that Costa Rica decided to sic Interpol on me is now looking like it will have a positive result. It has given me a larger voice to address the conflict of interests, the bribery and the corruption in Costa Rica that 
allows the illegal trade in shark fins to continue.

If in the event I am taken as a prisoner back to Costa Rica there will be no doubt that I will in fact be a political prisoner and not a criminal.

Finally the real criminals, those responsible for the illegal slaughter of hundreds of thousands of sharks are now under investigation and I am convinced that the corruption in Costa Rica goes all the way to the top and to the office of the President herself.
