“We won’t have a society if we destroy the environment.” Many environmentalists believe this is true when it comes to businesses overruling the environment in so many cases. In the Japanese dolphin slaughters is a prime example of that. The dolphin slaughters are eventually going to cause an entire species to become extinct because they are killing around 20,000 bottlenose dolphins per year. Taiji, alone, kills more than 2,300 Bottlenose Dolphins during the hunting seasons (Glionna). Japan likes to say that they are only doing this for the dolphin meat and to sell the living dolphins; however, this is a false statement because there is little to no demand for dolphin meat (Miller).
Since there are poor laws in place regarding the way they dispose of the waste from the ships, it all goes into the ocean untreated with many harmful bacteria, pathogens, and other stuff we dispose of. The law tells them that they can legally dump the waste 3 miles away from the shore. These are some of the many examples that pollution affects aquatic
That is not cool because this may kill the population and do you want to be known as the man who killed the rest of the Loggerhead's. Many people are killing turtles or disturbing them. It is wrong to disturb Loggerhead turtles in their nesting. My reason for that is they may get scared and leave their babies alone. It is also very wrong to kill Loggerhead Turtles.
There are millions of dolphins out in the oceans and they are declining fast because people couldn’t take another 12 steps to get to the trash cans that are all over the place in cities. Teens are the ones who mostly litter. Kamilo, an island in Hawaii is surrounded by thousands pieces of trash. They now call that place the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. It used to be a beautiful island but is now ruined by trash.
This shows that an environmental threat that blue crabs face is pollution because if about 1 million animals are dying each year because of pollution, we have a serious problem. Furthermore, another ecological hazard that this incredible animal faces is fishing and it’s equipment. According to the text, “Modern fishing methods have created some serious problems for the ocean. The populations of almost all fish species that we eat have shrunken,”(Dignan 14). This proves that another environmental threat that blue crabs faces are fishing because they may not be a type of fish, but, like most crabs, they are fished, caught and sold.
Millions of animals and birds cannot withstand such environmental changes; their populations become smaller and, eventually, disappear altogether from the face of the earth. Clumping of debris in the ocean is one of the biggest problems of the world, as it is far from people, no one takes it seriously. So, this research paper is dedicated to such problem as
Sea World did not get rid of Tillicum knowing that workers could die, but they wanted to wait until the whale died. At the age of 36 years old all of the trainers went on a boat to see the whales because they are so friendly until they get irritated. Why are people coming to SeaWorld even if trainers are getting killed because it shows how many people like animals. The other whales beat up Tillicum maybe that is why he started killing. Sea World lies to the people they say that they die at the age of 30 years old but really they die about the age of human life spend.
“The toxic algae bloom in Lake Erie that provoked last weekend 's tap water ban in Toledo, Ohio—where nearly half a million people were told not to use water for drinking, cooking, or bathing—is a preview of similar problems to come around the world, scientists say, thanks in part to climate change.” (Jane Lee). There could be many fish killed if there is another algae bloom. The water crisis is caused by warm water and runoff. If there is another water crisis it will affect many things. Water crises are bad in many ways so don’t pollute the
The main reason this has a social impact is because of fear. The fear of eating an infected bunch of shellfish stops companies and customers from buying them ("Paralytic Shellfish" 1 ). By the companies and regular customers not buying them, the companies lose money. This causes them to go into an economic depression, which may cause lose of money or bankruptcy ("Paralytic Shellfish" 2 ). The ecological effect is mainly the infection of certain marine life and may cause some species to slowly die off.
In conclusion, manatees are becoming extinct because people are populating the water that manatees live in which is causing them to die. Manatees are being struck by boats when people drive through shallow water too fast, because they cannot see them in time to move out of the way. Manatees are also becoming extinct because they are eating toxic algae that is produced from the
Sharks are driven to extinction because people want to eat their fins which serves no purpose to humans; shark fins have no nutritional value or serve any medicinal purpose. Finning is the inhumane practice of cutting off all of the shark’s fins and throwing the body back into the ocean. The sharks either drown are eaten by bigger fish or starve to death. Soon sharks are going to become extinct because of the 100 millions of sharks killed every year. If shark finning continues it will throw off the biodiversity of earth.
Red Tide: How it affects Marine Life Red tide in Florida is a reoccurring problem that threatens marine life every year. Red tide in Florida waterways has a negative impact on marine life because it produces toxins that are harmful to marine species. It lessens the amount of oxygen in the water which ultimately leads to the migration and death of many different marine animals. Millions of dollars are poured into red tide research and prevention every year to help predict when and where a red tide is going to form. All the while, millions of dollars are being lost due to a drop in tourism and bans on fishing as red tide wreaks havoc on businesses and marine life.
Ocean acidification is killing off the oyster population, which is also affecting the jobs in Washington. Initially, ocean acidification is when acidic gases are emitted into the air and absorbed into the ocean. According to the video Ocean Acidification by NOAA, ¼ of all the carbon dioxide release into the air is absorbed into the oceans. Some major contributors to carbon emissions are automobile gas and factory emissions. This is a problem in the Pacific Northwest because acid sinks to the bottom, but Pacific winds bring acidic water up from the bottom near the shore by the shellfish.
Driving out a species is of less impact than high intensity interactions that can injure or even kill the “intruders”. Canada Goose goslings, for instance, have been injured or drowned by Mute Swans (Mute Swan: A Non-Native…2013). Movement of a species disrupts the ecological aspects of an area, but killing a species is very damaging to the biodiversity. Mute swans are also capable of inflicting great injury on humans and in a couple cases even death. In Des Plaines, a man drowned after being attacked by a mute swan.
