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.
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.
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. First, it has a tremendous negative impact on the marine ecosystem.
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.
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;
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
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.
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,
Rising seas threaten sea turtle populations. This project was supported by organizations such as the Surfrider Foundation, the Sea Turtle Conservancy, Oceana, Florida Wildlife Federation, the Florida Climate Institute, The Sea to Shore Alliance, and several others. Go to aheadofthetide.org to learn more. In some of the footage, many will recognize much of the beach and aerial footage in South Ponte Vedra and Vilano Beach. Melanie Cavanaugh (from South Ponte Vedra Turtle Patrol) and Scott make a brief cameo in Chapter 6.
A vulnerable species means if their their birth and deaths rates decrease, they will become endangered. Humans hunt Makos for sports and food(Gray, 2014). For example, they make shark fin soup with Mako sharks. To protect the Mako Shark species, they are protected by U.S. waters(Beardsley, 2015). Mako sharks are fascinating animals.
Loggerhead sea turtles face many dangers including artificial lights, which contribute to their endangerment. The most prevalent way loggerhead sea turtles are being threatened is by human interaction. Humans turn on lights by the beach at night sometimes in turtle nesting season, and this can influence female turtles to avoid the beach, where they need to lay their eggs. (“Please turn your lights off, the turtles are nesting: ensuring that federal, state, and local laws help guide endangered marine turtle hatchlings in Florida to the right source of light”). However, there are some actions humans can take to help prevent endangerment of sea turtle hatchlings.
Theodore Roosevelt set aside large parts of land to be conserved for future generations rather than be sold or developed. These lands eventually became major national parks and forests, containing wildlife and acres of forests and water. The idea was to ensure the sustainability of natural resources, and what's exactly what happened. The problem is, everything is growing.
