Maintaining Healthy, Balanced Marine System Are Crucial for Species Survival

Maintaining Healthy, Balanced Marine System Are Crucial for Species Survival | scubadiving | Scoop.it

27 OCTOBER 2012

To prevent other marine mammals from going extinct, conservation efforts are crucial.

The Caribbean waters are home to 36 species of marine mammals, but surprisingly little is known about the lives of these intelligent and social creatures. Highly dependent on large, intact and healthy underwater ecosystems, marine mammals are sensitive to human-based pressures such as overfishing, land-based pollution and even cruise tourism (cruise ship collisions with whales is not uncommon). ... http://www.natuurbericht.nl/?id=9583

October 14, 2012 - Planet Change

Many decisions and investments for coastal protection are being made today. The concern is that most money will go to gray infrastructure (artificial breakwaters and seawalls) – with further detrimental effects on coasts and habitats, expensive maintenance costs and no other benefits beyond their protective service.

Green infrastructure solutions, like reef and mangrove conservation and restoration, are viable and cost effective alternatives.... http://change.nature.org/2012/10/11/people-at-risk-to-natural-disasters-and-how-nature-can-help/
