Why Sardines Matter: Critical Ecosystem Food Source in Steep Decline

Why Sardines Matter: Critical Ecosystem Food Source in Steep Decline | Our Ailing Oceans | Scoop.it

Pew Environment, December 11, 2013

WHY SARDINES MATTER

The Pacific coast of North America supports one of the most vibrant and diverse marine ecosystems on Earth, largely because of the presence of thick schools of small prey fish such as Pacific sardines.

Unfortunately, this crucial forage fish appears to be in the midst of a severe population decline. Its absence will be felt by dozens of species of West Coast seabirds, whales, sharks, dolphins, and commercially important fish such as salmon and tuna that depend on sardines as a major food source... http://www.pewenvironment.org/news-room/other-resources/pacific-sardines-critical-food-source-in-steep-decline-85899526197?utm_campaign=2013-12-19%20Latest.html&utm_medium=email&utm_source=Eloqua

Alison D. Gilbert's curator insight, January 1, 3:46 AM

'Global evolution' may not be based upon the occurance of natural selection. If it is based upon man's ignorance of keeping a necessary balance in nature, will we be in time to correct or rebalance it? From this piece, Why Sardines Matter: Critical Ecosystem Food Source in Steep Decline, one can only wonder if this is possible and how we could be in time to save disappearing species.

Report: Climate Change Has Already Brought Catastrophe to US #Wildlife | Our Ailing Oceans | Scoop.it

Jan 30, 2013

Climate change has already pushed the nation's wildlife into crisis, according to a report released Wednesday from the National Wildlife Federation (NWF), and further catastrophe, including widespread extinction, can only be curbed with swift action to curb the carbon pollution that has the planet sweltering.

Entitled Wildlife in a Warming World: Confronting the Climate Crisis, the report looks at 8 regions across the U.S. where "the underlying climatic conditions to which species have been accustomed for thousands of years," the report explains, have been upturned by human-caused climate change.

“Some of America’s most iconic species—from moose to sandhill cranes to sea turtles – are seeing their homes transformed by rapid climate change,” stated Dr. Amanda Staudt, climate scientist at the National Wildlife Federation.
