Can sharks, the predator of the oceans and humans swim safety together? No they can not, humans and sharks need to be separated and humans protected. I do not want to see anymore lives taken by a shark. The way to stop this is to have shark nets at our swimming beaches.
Great white sharks are the biggest predatory fish in the ocean and they can grow to about 15 feet in size, although larger than 20 feet have been seen. Their name comes from the white underbellies of the sharks and their bodies are designed to blend in with the seabed. The great whites have powerful tails which makes them excellent swimmers that can travel up to 24 km/h. They have many rows of triangular shaped teeth and have a great sense of smell and even their body can sense electromagnetic fields produced by animals. They mainly eat sea lions, small toothed whales and sea turtles. These sharks can be found in cold coastal waters around the world, scientists are not sure how many
Kitson Jazynka’s purpose in writing Saving the sea otters is just part of her normal day at work is to recount the fact that saving underwater animals are important. Underwater sea animals are dying faster and going extinct,they need our help. Anything that can affect the otters can affect us humans as well and we can help eachother out with this fact. We think that it is important to discover the remains of the dead sea animal, because we care and want to reveal a bit more maybe even discover a new species. Lastly we need them because a species can tell us a lot of information.
Marine parks have been around for a long time, catering some entertainment to people by letting them have a glimpse of some marine animals like dolphins, whales etc. However, the mere existence of marine parks has become a contentious topic across the globe. While some may believe that the sole purpose of these parks is to provide entertainment, there also exists a section of the population which dwells on the notion that marine parks are unpleasant for both the animals and the society. Bill Daly is a persistent follower of the latter notion. In his essay Marine Parks, he puts forth the argument that marine parks should be closed down because observing marine animals is much better in the wild instead of being held captive in the marine parks. He states that the research conducted on these marine animals is not reliable, also that visits from foreign tourists will not decline with the demise of these parks. Moreover, he adds that such parks are unnecessary and cruel to these marine mammals. Bill Daly has a strong viewpoint on the reasons he gives for his argument, however, I do not agree with him. Indeed some of his reasoning does make sense, but according to me his reasons seem very theoretical or rather hypothetical and not applicable in the real world. I believe that marine parks should not be closed down. Since, they allow public access to see these animals, they act as tourist attraction spots with economical and financial benefits, they do not hinder scientific
“Sharks Don’t Bite” is a story that is worth sharing with the world, but in order to do the story justice, we need help. With assistance from the Hixson-Lied College of Fine and Performing Arts, we will be able to fully bring “Sharks Don’t Bite” to life, and take the art created at the Johnny Carson School of Theatre and Film to the next
First of all, sharks are surprisingly not that cute as babies. Baby sharks are called pups. Pups are twice the size of your average goldfish, and have one sort-of-sharp set of teeth. Pups can be born in three ways. According to www.underwatertimes.com, “They’re most commonly born physically, but also can be born by laying eggs, and even by eggs hatching inside of their parents, which is also called ovoviviparity.” Once pups are born, they grow slowly, open their eyes, change their fins, get their second set of teeth, and get sharper teeth. From the title, you would think this next part would be about their family life. You’re both right and wrong, because most species of sharks usually don’t have big families, because their mothers don’t care for their babies after they’re born. They only do so before they’re born. So don’t expect to think “Aww” when you see a baby shark.
Sharks have lived on the earth longer than you think for example, over three hundred years ago sharks roamed in waters, that is one hundred million years before dinosaurs roamed the earth! Some of the sharks that roamed long ago don’t roam today, on the other hand a handful of the sharks that lived then still live today. Who knows there may be more sharks in the deep of the ocean that we don’t know exist, most of the ocean has not been searched.
The analogy of selective breeding was used by Darwin to explain natural selection. Darwin’s most famous theory is the natural selection. Natural selection is the evolutionary change that comes through the production of variation in different generation and differential survival of individuals with different combinations of theses variable characters. The
If you’re like me, you love nothing more than getting your feet wet at the ocean. But what if every time you stuck your feet in you were greeted by brackish water? That’s our world if we don’t change. When Oxybenzone, the active ingredient in 70% of suntan lotions, meets
Severe and sometimes irreversible consequences often accompany the introduction of invasive species. Invasive species may directly compete with native species, contribute to biodiversity, increase predation on native species, and destroy natural habitat, often at an extreme cost to the economy (Morris and Whitfield 2009). In the Caribbean Sea, two species of lionfish, the red lionfish (Pterois volitans) and common lionfish (Pterois miles), have been introduced to the area, and their range is rapidly expanding (Schofield 2009).
According to the article, Shark populations healthy but still at risk, study finds, by Timothy Hurley, overfishing is the main cause of the population declining. Numerous sharks have been caught and thrown back after their fins have been cut off, the process is known as finning. For this reason, fins are used for soup, a delicacy known as shark fin soup. The dish supposedly offers various benefits to our bodies. However there is no scientific fact to support it. As the demands for shark fins increase, more sharks result in death. First and foremost, the practice is negatively impacting the population and environment. We need to raise awareness to revive the shark
About 71 percent of our planet Earth is covered by water, and the majority comes from the oceans (about 96.5 percent of all Earth’s water). It remains as the most expansive, diverse, and mysterious places on planet Earth. But it is being threatened by the pollution by people and nature itself. By polluting the habitat of marine organism will indirectly affect the ecosystem of the marine life. Marine life is dying and as the result the oceanic ecosystem is threatened.
I’m a non-threatening hammerhead shark writing this letter for you humans. There are many things wrong in this world and one of the biggest issues would be the killing of my kind. Around 100 million of the shark species are killed each year and very well be gone in the next decades. We are getting killed by greed of people while our existence plays a huge role in the ocean ecosystem.
Coral reefs are one of the most diverse and complex habitats. They are one of the most interesting and colorful ecosystems found in the marine environment. They are very unique in many different ways and a crucial support for human life. They play also a very important role in the marine life such as giving shelter and food for millions of species including fishes, crabs, or shrimps. They support 33% of marine fish species. They also have specific and certain conditions to be formed, and to survive. They are also known as the “rainforest of the oceans” because of its huge diversity. In this research paper we will explore more about coral reefs and their importance.
