People shouldn’t kill or disturb Loggerhead Turtles. We should save all the Loggerhead Turtles in the world and then we can have them as pets. One main reason for Loggerhead Turtle death is because of fishermen nets. We can save them by going Scuba diving. We can also save Loggerhead Turtles from reckless drivers by Scuba diving because of the debris.
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.
Holding the boats just days before the season starts, and the accumulating cost of sitting at the docks, has frustrated many boat owners. Keith Colburn, the owner of The Wizard, told fox reporters that the government shutdown really cut down on the profits of these fishers. He says that the main buyers of the crabs are the Japanese markets during the holiday seasons. And that they have to get the crabs to Japan by November, or they risk missing out on the main portion of their sales (Deadliest Catch's' Keith, 1). If the Japanese do not get their crabs by that time, then they will gladly go to the Russian market, which has been clouded by questionable practices.
Humans were not around at the time the monk seals arrived, and the monk seals are more commonly found in the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands that are less inhibited by people compared to the Main Hawaiian Islands with a larger human population (Lowry et al, 2011). The Hawaiian monk seal population has been in a rise and fall ever since the discovery of the monk seals by a Russian explorer in 1805. Due to its discovery, the monk seal population virtually died out by the mid 1800’s due to the commercial seal hunting and being killed for food by sailors and whalers (Lowry et al, 2011). Until the mid 1900’s, the seals were never seen and thought to be extinct because they were never seen by hunters or sailors, but the first beach count survey was taken in 1958, showing a slight recovery (Schultz et al, 2010). Another decline was also seen during the 1960’s-1970’s that showed a 75% decrease in number of monk seals seen on the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands (Gilmartin et al,
Some ways we can help is stop littering, volunteer in clean up groups, and bring reusable grocery bags when shopping to reduce trash. Pharmaceuticals affect the Chesapeake Bay as well. Drugs such as, painkillers, antidepressants, and hormones, are showing up in samples taken from the Bay. This can affect the reproduction of fish and plants. We can stop this problem by, not flushing or throwing away unwanted medicine and disposing of unwanted medicine at the proper hazardous waste facilities.
In this research of real life members you are able to see the dramatic drop in number of lived years for an animal in SeaWorld. On top of all of this, they are not being bred naturally. In SeaWorld, Orcas naturally breed at the age of 15, but in SeaWorld they are bred at the age of 8 or 9 (thetoptens). This shows that the company only wants more animals for more shows and more money, even though it is not right. You might be saying, “well they have rehabilitation center inside the parks to help the animals when needed.” This is true, but no matter how much medicine you give them cannot cure their animal nature of wanting to be free in the ocean and stop their sadness of being enclosed.
This information appears to be encouraging the reader not to boycott seafood because the seafood is becoming more and more sustainable. However, the point of the boycott was to stop the hunting of harp seals; if people wanted to support the swilers, they would not boycott in the first place. This becomes red herring information (Henderson, 2013, p. 52) because it takes the focus off seal hunting, and provides irrelevant
Most people may argue that we can just remove them and be fine, but little these plastic pellets absorb dangerous chemicals, such as pesticides, run-off oil, and PCP’s. In the scientific report, “Anthropogenic debris in seafood: Plastic debris and fibers from textiles in fish and bivalves sold for human consumption,” Chelsea Rochman, et al notes this particular situation in this regard: such as that bivalve study indicated a direct connection between the debris and food targeted for human consumption, (Rochman, et al. “Anthropogenic debris in seafood: Plastic debris and fibers from textiles in fish and bivalves sold for human consumption”); and 16 out of the 64 of the individual fish in the USA had anthropogenic debris in their GI tract, (Rochman, et al. “Anthropogenic debris in seafood: Plastic debris and fibers from textiles in fish and bivalves sold for human consumption”). Meaning we are consuming these chemicals found in the plastics due to the fish ingesting these plastic pellets.
This decrease affects the ecosystems in which the salmon reside as well as puts the future of Pacific Salmon as both a species and a food source in danger. Using the key ideas from Garret Hardin’s essay “The Tragedy of the Commons,” the depletion of commercial salmon fisheries must be examined. Ultimately, programs for habitat restoration
