Selena Whiu's insight:

Very clear little clip about ocean conservations and issues that have a large and often negative impact on our environments.

Do we need something like this locally?

Can you find something like this in NZ?

Dead dolphins and shrimp with no eyes found after BP clean-up

Dead dolphins and shrimp with no eyes found after BP clean-up | Te Ara Poutama - In the Water | Scoop.it

Hundreds of beached dolphin carcasses, shrimp with no eyes, contaminated fish, ancient corals caked in oil and some seriously unwell people are among the legacies that scientists are still uncovering in the wake of BP's Deepwater Horizon spill.

 

This week it will be three years since the first of 4.9 million barrels of crude oil gushed into the Gulf of Mexico, in what is now considered the largest marine oil spill in the history of the petroleum industry. As the scale of the ecological disaster unfolds, BP is appearing daily in a New Orleans federal court to battle over the extent of compensation it owes to the region.

Selena Whiu's insight:

Diagram to help show consequences of something like the oil spill.

How would it have been different if it had happened in NZ?

What are the similarities to the Rena disaster in Tauranga?

Australian endangered species: Northern River Shark

Australian endangered species: Northern River Shark | Te Ara Poutama - In the Water | Scoop.it

The Northern River Shark (Glyphis garricki) is one of the rarest species of shark in the world. It is known only from a small number of locations in Western Australia, the Northern Territory and Papua New Guinea. Discovered in Australia in 1986, only 36 specimens have been recorded here since.

 

The Northern River Shark is a 2.5-3 metre long shark belonging to a family known aswhaler or requiem sharks. Its closest relative in Australia is the Speartooth Shark, also found in northern rivers and estuaries and listed as Endangered by the IUCN. Distinguishing between the two is difficult, but is based on the location of the “waterline”, the point where the darker upper-body colouring of the shark changes to lighter lower colour.

Selena Whiu's insight:

Close to home shark. 

Good reading.
