Sara Aguilar's insight:

This page talks about all the new species of birds and their migration. These birds could be getting protection while on their trip because of the decrease in numbers. The decrease of the crabs along the shores of New Jersey have become a huge factor in the decrease of the birds because the crabs are a primary source of food.

This article has some amazing pictures showing the thousands of geese flying in Canada's national park. I liked this article because of the pictures that help your mind see what the reporter was talking about. These geese sure put on a show without even knowing it and I bet they make noise that can be heard for miles!

I enjoyed looking at these photos of birds. It really showed another side of reporting. All these pictures told a story about the birds' migration. I think it is incredible how many can fly in a flock at once. If I had the chance to see these birds take off, I would be awestruck.

Dolphins keep lifelong social memories, longest in a non-human species

Dolphins keep lifelong social memories, longest in a non-human species | Wildlife | Scoop.it
Dolphins can recognize their old tank mates’ whistles after being separated for more than 20 years — the longest social memory ever recorded for a non-human species.

I found the title very interesting about the dolphins' memory. If a dolphin can have such a long memory what other skills don't we know about? This just helps show how smart animals can be and what other things we have yet to learn.

So people are buying illegal animal parts and skins without knowing it?! I wonder if they'll get by with a warning? Because they don't know they're doing it.

Fish firm owner fined USD 6,000

CANADA
Wednesday, August 15, 2012, 22:40 (GMT + 9)

The owner and operator of Great Slave Fish Products Limited was sentenced to pay CAD 6,000 (USD 6,047) this week, after pleading guilty in Yellowknife Territorial Court to four violations of regulations made pursuant to the Fisheries Act.

Brian Abbott was accused of failing to register his commercial vessel, fishing in an area closed to commercial fishing, failing to comply with a licence condition and leaving gear set unattended without being marked with a vessel registration number or the name of the owner.

The offences occurred in Great Slave Lake near the city of Yellowknife.

launched an investigation following a compliance check conducted on 27 July 2011, during which Abbott failed to produce a commercial fishing logbook, commercial fishing licence and his commercial fishing vessel registration.

With assistance from the Canadian Wildlife Service and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, Fisheries and Oceans Canada Fishery Officers conducted searches of the commercial vessel the Seabird, the Fish Truck store front and his Jolliffe Island fish plant, seizing over 1,500 kg of fish and several documents.

Fisheries and Oceans Canada is committed to the conservation and protection of northern fish stocks and fish habitat through public awareness, regulations, partnerships and, where necessary, enforcement action.

Veterinarians in Alaska say they don't know what has killed almost 200 arctic ringed seals since July, with similar deaths reported in Canada and Russia.

The mystery ailment causes the animals' hair to fall out and ulcers to develop on their skin and flippers, and necropsies have revealed lesions on their lungs, livers, hearts and brains, NewScientist.com reported Saturday.

Tis is a short article on a mysterious disease that is killing seals, walruses, and other animals in the upper part of the artic circle. This relates to the book because the location is in the U.S. and Canada. I like this story because mysteries always intrigue me.

This is very sad. Arctic seals are very neat looking creatures. I really hope they figure out how they are dying so they can prevent this from happening!
