A new series on Discovery Channel includes #scuba - not sure it's #eco though! | Scuba Diving | Scoop.it

Interesting to hear that scuba diving will be on a new Discovery Channel series. However... It might not be very eco-friendly! The series is about gold-dredging "which basically involves one Foster scuba diving and vacuuming the ocean floor while the other Foster monitors the boat's machinery."

Mules, Ligers, and Zorses, oh my!
In Australia, sharks have joined the leagues of the hybrid species.
While actually quite rare in the wild, these sharks are interbreeding frequently. At one point a total of 57 hybrid sharks were found along 200 km of coastline, a truly impressive feat.
In Australia, even the fish are awesome.
