Did you know sharks lay eggs inside them, then the eggs hatch then go to a place to have babies and leave them? The great whites are fabulous creatures but so misunderstood because of myths. People think they're violent but they're actually not and people hunt them. So many sharks are killed in the world for resources and this is how they're getting endangered. The sharks have a major role in the ocean and people do not know that's why we have to save sharks.
Sea turtles often eat plastic bags instead of jellies. This cost for turtle a life, as plastic causes a blockage within digestive system. But this is only the beginning. Spots made of plastic cover for Sunlight cannot penetrate through plastic garbage into the water, algae and plankton, which is the bottom of the food chain, may simply die out. The situation can quickly turn into a global crisis.
Hence, overfishing threatens coastal nations down to the local level, devastating communities whose dominant sources of labor and revenue hinges on healthy, plentiful stocks of fish. Also, marine life imbalance may affect the targeted fishing of top predators such as billfish, sharks and tuna that eventually disturbs marine communities. In fact, it is causing increased abundance of smaller marine animals at the bottom of the food chain. This in turn has impacts on the rest of the marine ecosystem, such as the increased growth of algae and threats to coral reef health. Overfishing is also closely tied to by catch, another serious marine threat that causes the needless loss of billions of fish, along with marine turtles and
If wildlife’s ingestion of plastics caused by people’s improper throw of these materials isn’t enough of a burden. There are other ways that the wildlife are affected by plastic pollution. Such as entanglement, this is mostly common in marine life, such as fish, seals, turtles and birds. These animals get stuck in these debris and end up suffocating or drowning. Because they are unable to untangle themselves, they also die from starvation or from their inability to escape predators.
Whales shouldn’t be captured and put into small tanks and where it’s to a point where people’s lives are at risk and its just unfair for the whales because they deserve so much more than they are given. Owing to the fact that people love to see Tilikum jump in the air doing tricks and to eat fish as a reward there’s a bigger problem that’s at stake and a whale that might lose his life because of it. What Tilikum has to go through each and everyday and the pain he suffers is not what we want to see. In addition the marine park, which has owned Tilikum for more than two decades, said in a statement on its website that “he is suffering from an illness that probably may take his life”. Keeping the whales in these small tanks and in captivity feeding them barely enough to satisfy them is more likely they 're going to get a sickness over the rough years they have encountered .
Although recycling makes a difference, many container still end up in beaches and oceans. The drink containers cause death and injuries for many wildlife and marine creatures. Animals like whales and dolphins become victims of land litter, as 80% of majority of the plastics comes directly from land. Dr Jennifer Lavers, researched the impacts of plastics on marine life, claims that 85% of Australian marine birds are affected by plastics (Stop trashing Australia, 2012). Apart from animals getting tangled in debris, it is extremely harmful when there is run down fishing gear, as it results in ‘ghost fishing’.
These seabirds eat during the night by sitting on the water and catching smaller prey with their bills. (Ornithology) These seabirds, however, have been affected by plastic being left in the ocean and on the ground. Since the Laysan Albatross eats their food from the top of the water, they usually mistake their food for pieces of plastic and end up being harmed in the process. The plastic that these seabirds eat are hard for them to digest which causes it to become stuck inside of the bird’s body which starves them and kills them in the process. Also the Laysan Albatross can pass this plastic on to their chicks, mistaking it for food which then kills the chicks as well due to the plastic being literally impossible to digest.
Populations of these animals either increase dramatically or decrease dramatically, e.g. the crabs that would eat these fish in 1992 had their populations increase suddenly, due to the loss of their main predator, whereas shark numbers and other predators of the fish would decrease due to lack of food. As a result, these animals will hunt other fish and decrease the population and etc, resulting in a mass increase and decrease of populations in the ocean. Some major issues surrounding overfishing are environmental sustainability, unemployment and economic loss. The questions that the issue of overfishing poses are ‘do the benefits of overfishing outweigh the disadvantages?’ or ‘how can people change the method of catch in order to provide enough food for people whilst preserving populations?’ National/Local Perspective in Hong
There is a higher chance for ticket buyers to win the lottery than for a person to be attacked by a shark. Yet there’s a cultural fear of sharks everywhere due to the demonization of them, and the fear makes anyone scared of sharks blind to the fact they’re dying in radical numbers due to the disgusting act of finning. Shark finning should be banned worldwide because it is a wasteful and cruel act, it will cause the extinction of sharks, and sharks are important to the environment and therefore should be protected. Finning is wasting the entire shark just for their fins and the way it’s carried out is very inhumane. For instance, in “Sharks Under Attack”, Sarah Bennington explains how it works, “Many of the sharks caught as bycatch fall victim
A number of threatened and endangered bird species have also been found in the digestive tracts of pythons, prompting concern that they could drive some species toward extinction Lampreys in the Great Lake parasitize native fish. Because the native species have not evolved defenses to lampreys, they often die outright from wounds, or wounds become infected and eventually cause
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
The oyster hatcheries are affected because the baby oysters, or larvae, need calcium carbonate to build their shells, but it is replaced by the emitted carbon dioxide. The pH, or calcium carbonate will have gone down by 50% by mid century, according to the article, “Are Oysters Doomed?” The larvae dissolve in acidic water because they don’t have the nutrients to make their shells. If the oyster hatcheries don’t have the larvae to give to the oyster farms, then they can’t support the industry which is very large in Washington. Infact, the video Acidifying Water Takes Toll On Northwest Shellfish, says that the oyster industry supports 3,200 jobs in Washington state and brings in $2.7 million a year
Which is true every were you go you are at risk and it is not safe for anybody to swim with sharks. So people are now saying that we need to kill the sharks before they have the chance to attack us. Sharks started hunting people after they saw them pondering around in the ocean. By researching people that hunt sharks are saying that it is easier to
This includes 86% sea turtles species and 44% of all sea birds species. Plastic pollution has impacted them with fatalities such as ingestion, starvation, suffocation and infections. Water bottle company 's shouldn 't take the blame for the pollution. I think that the people who litter and throw away their rubbish in the oceans are responsible for it. People who litter are harming the ocean and making it dirty that has cause a lot of animals to die.
