Tourism is a huge industry in today’s economy, however due to this it can have long lasting effects on the animals it involves. Whale sharks (Rhincodon typus) are the biggest animals in our oceans and have a docile personality which attracts tourists every year, however in recent studies it has shown that viewings of the whale shark can cause it stress resulting in behavioural changes. The stress caused on the whale shark can have different effects on the whale shark which can interrupt their feeding, breeding and their lives in general. These are proven in studies that I have looked at, including a paper, by Angela Quiros, that studied the whale shark behaviour whilst being observed by tourists in boats and in the water. It also looked at if the tourists and

According to “How did whales become do large? Scientists dive into marine mystery” by Nicola Davis, the blue whale has a body the length of a jetliner, a heart the size of a car and a tongue the weight of an elephant. Researchers now say that they might have found the solution to the mystery behind why baleen whales-a group that includes the blue whales, became the largest animals on the planet. Scientists say that the massive growth which was driven by changes in the distribution of oceanic food and happened just 2 to 3 million years ago. Graham Slater, an evolutionary biologist and co-author of the research from the University of Chicago says that baleen whales have only been giants for one-tenth of their 36-million-year evolutionary history.

 Scholar Lawrence Buell describes the arrangement of the non-narrative chapters as structured around three patterns: first, the nine meetings of the Pequod with ships that have encountered Moby Dick. Each has been more and more severely damaged, foreshadowing the Pequod 's own fate. Second, the increasingly impressive encounters with whales. In the early encounters, the whaleboats hardly make contact; later there are false alarms and routine chases; finally, the massive assembling of whales at the edges of the China Sea in "The Grand Armada". A typhoon near Japan sets the stage for Ahab 's confrontation with Moby Dick.
An expert was called in from the Hastings museum and he instantly identified the bones as mammoth and started excavating the skeleton. While digging a tunnel around the left scapula, Brooks encountered a hard object which he removed and it was identified as a fluted artifact. This was a major discovery as it was believed to be the first association between a fluted artifact and a mammoth skeleton. Controversy began when two scientists claimed that the land where the mammoth was found was far too old for a fluted artifact to be in play. Many scientists had taken position that the angus mammoth and the fluted artifact were a good association however there were the few skeptics who continued to look for and argue that the site was too old and therefore impossible to validate the discovery.

Rachel Ganz Writing-6 December 19, 2017 6 Fun Facts About Marine Animals Marine animals are all different shapes and sizes that differ drastically. Marine Animals live in the great big ocean and lakes all across the world and have very unusual characteristics about themselves that make them who they are today. Marine animals are a very interesting and unusual species due to their dramatic changes over the years. 1. How Big Really Are Blue Whales?
There are people believed that whaling has been done for years. Some ethnic group believes that it is a cultural right to hunt whales. In Prehistoric cultures were hunting whales at least 3000 years ago (2008), whale hunting were commenced by the primordial ethnic at least three thousand years ago. It is clear that whale hunting is not just done by generation nowadays but has already been done by people in the past. As a whole, whale hunting has become more and more conventional.
This paper is reviewing some journals of southern right whale sightings that related with this species description, population, threats and behaviour, focusing on how this species appeared in Queensland waters. In identifying large marine mammals like the southern right whale, several
Several northern European countries still whale for food, and Japan (the last country to operate a full scale whaling armada) runs a very controversial whaling program which is claimed to be for research, but which many advocacy groups claim is for specialty food. Whaling in the twentieth and twenty first centuries is also very different than that of the 1800s. Instead of a solitary ship, a modern whaling operation is a small armada. Sonar and sometimes even helicopters are used to location the whales. Small and extremely fast “kill ships” then move in.
Journalist Ashley Pierce observed that, in the wild, male orcas live to an average of sixty-five years while females live an average of ninety years. The natural environment creates more than double the lifespan faced in captivity (Pierce 1). Orcas live a shortened lifespan in captivity because the whales can not handle the lack of space given. Over a period of the orcas’ life in confinement, results in the bodies shutting down more and more every day. The Beacham 's Guide to the Endangered Species of North America, expresses that, orcas venture throughout the Pacific Ocean within the whales lifespan (Killer Whale 1).
Dinosaurs are a group of reptiles that became extinct 65 million years ago. Over the course of the 4 million years we have been living, scientists have observed our world. Scientists have taken scientific facts combined with the bodies of many Dinosaurs to help come up with theories about extinction. As scientists found more dinosaurs they wondered how dinosaurs became extinct. Scientists realized that our planet had been inhabited by another mammal before humans.
