The Great Barrier Reef is in rough shape after multiple bleaching events. The Ocean Agency / XL Catlin Seaview Survey Two new studies show that the world's oceans are in dire straits — even more than scientists previously thought. One study found that coral bleaching events, which can kill reefs, are now happening every few years instead of every few decades. And a new review found that oceans are losing oxygen faster than we realized, which could have serious consequences for marine life. Ocean health has a huge impact on human health, so solving these problems is essential. Our world is an ocean planet. The seas support hundreds of millions of people by providing food and jobs around the globe. Ocean plants produce up to 85% of the oxygen in the air we breathe. But a pair of new studies published in the journal Science indicate that the oceans have...
It’s official. The Great Barrier Reef cannot be saved. The prognosis comes from the Australian government’s Reef 2050 advisory committee, made up of experts and scientists responsible for managing the reef’s future. In the more optimistic times of 2015, the committee put out a report on how to best preserve the reef. But now two of the committee’s experts have told the Guardian that the plan is no longer feasible “due to the dramatic impacts of climate change.” Instead, they recommend that the goal be revised to “maintain the ecological function” of the Great Barrier Reef. And the reef may now have a better shot of being listed as a “ World Heritage site in danger ,” a designation the Australian government has fought for for years. Record temperatures have killed almost half of the coral in the Great Barrier Reef One reason for the bleaker forecast for the reef...
No not really... let us not fool ourselves anymore, because of the 'beauty' of images depicting a predator in unnatural behavior with a human.
If you make money by wearing a mesh suit, feeding sharks and showing of tricks. Then please have the amiability to NOT compare yourself to either 1. A conservationist or 2. A Professional guide who takes the time and patience over years to approach sharks on a natural basis.
I don't go to Serengeti park, set down a bucket of food, learn lions to do tricks and call it conservation.
Even if you are woman of the year, PADI's dream queen of marketing...
Wrong is wrong - period!
Where's the difference with what seaworld does...one thing the enclosure. Basta
So this little lucky bugger called "Double Sharkbite" had a hook and line under his right flipper. I went along with the superb volunteers of the Sea Turtle Conservation Curacao and after quickly locating him and after a 5' ordeal by me (removing the hook and some scalpel work), the little fellow went merrily on his way. Loved the experience, more soon on the great work done by these humans for nature.
