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.”

Life in the Dead Sea

Life in the Dead Sea | Oceanic | Scoop.it
It's pretty exciting really. The so called 'Dead Sea' is now found to be home to living bacteria. This is an incredible find. Long suspected to be subject to underwater springs, this theory was proven by a team of scientists in 2010.
