Marine biologists study, observe, and help animals. They may find solutions for a disease or clean up an oil spill. The world needs marine biologists to protect and preserve underwater ecosystems. When I grow up I want to be able to help the ocean environment by becoming a marine biologist. To become a marine biologist, you need a lot of education.
Oceans are a noisy place. Marine biologist use sound recorders to record sounds made by marine animals, marine biologist analyze the sounds. Marine animals can be tracked by the sounds they make. Personal characteristics that are mandatory when being a marine biologist include having patience, curiosity, and interest in the ocean. A marine biologist is always learning so you must have an interest in whatever you're researching or studying about.
This has a myriad of impact in the marine ecosystem and well beyond. First, I would like you to understand the scale of this problem. A report from the United Nations (UN) estimates that nearly 52% of the world’s fish population is endanger of being exploited, overfished and eventually even depleted . If you think about the sheer size of the ocean and how many fish live in the ocean, this is a very concerning statistic. This is concerning for a couple of reasons.
In this paper I will be talking to you about how we can save turtles from these big threats to Loggerhead turtles and about what these threats are doing to the Loggerhead Sea Turtles. One of the main threats to Loggerhead Sea turtles is fishermen. Loggerhead Sea Turtles
Salem Abdullah Alazmi S00036124 Dr. Buckton-Tucker ENGL 102-05 May/4 Annotated Bibliography The earth is surrounded with oceans, oceans covers around 70% of the earth. With this number of oceans, all of it is effect by pollution. Many animals that lives inside these oceans are effected from this pollution. Not only the animals but also people, that may cause death to some people and to some animals, some animals are extinct because of the pollution. Humans are the reasonable behind all of this pollution.
II. FACTORS CAUSING THE DECREASING OF OYSTER REEFS. Nowadays in many literature are represented the most important threats for oyster beds, as overharvest, development and pollution, changes in freshwater inflows, erosion from boats, diseases, invasive species, global change… (Coen et al. 2000; Seavey et al. 2011; Gregalis et al.
From the sociological perspective, it was a huge social, cultural, economic and psychological threat for the communities living across the coastlines, cleanup workers, and especially children. Firstly, oil was released into the sea; it spread out on the surface of the water and contaminated the sea and coastlines. Statistics had shown that the Gulf oil spill killed 3,902 birds, 517 turtles, 71 marine mammals and more than thousands of other wildlife animals under the sea are covered by oil during or after the disaster (Merchant, 2010). Besides, the contaminated
Although there are many groups of people who depend on oceans for sustainable livelihoods, they are the most vulnerable because they become so reliant on natural resources and are harming themselves without even knowing it. Oceans are increasingly threatened, degraded or destroyed by human activities, as this causes the oceans to reduce their ability to provide crucial ecosystem services. Important threats that
California sea lion (Zalophus Californianus) - Key characteristics – interactions with humans – communications – Feeding habits – reproduction – threats - conservation Introduction: California Sea Lion, Zalophus Californians belongs to the family “Otariidae”. The animal is found along the coast of the eastern North Pacific. The breeding of California sea lions takes place on islands off the coasts of California and Baja California. They inhabit rocky and sandy beaches of coastal islands and mainland shorelines. They may frequent inhabit sandbars; sheltered coves; tide pools; and structures such as piers, jetties, and buoys.
Lizeth Felix-Guzman AVID August 9, 2014 Marine Biologist A marine biologist refers to anyone who studies or works with animals or plants that live in salt water from the tiniest microbes and plankton to the largest whales, and every species in between. Marine biologist also works towards discovering all the unknown plants and animals that live in the depths of the sea. Marine biologist study life in the oceans, they study the process of how marine organisms develop and relate to each other and how they adapt to their environment and interact with it (Marine).Studying this is essential in order for them to be preserved. Usually marine biologists have more specific job titles such as an ichthyologist, cetologist, marine mammal trainer,
