in marine biology. I am interested in working with marine mammals, with an emphasis on pinnipeds. I hope to go to work either for a government agency or private company as a researcher and eventually transition into marine policy. My interests include the ecology and conservation of marine mammals. I believe it is important to look at the ecosystem as a whole when doing ecological studies.

In 2013, the documentary called Blackfish was released, a story about a killer whale that over the years at SeaWorld killed several people. It highlighted some of the major problems with animals in captivity. SeaWorld, known for having several different animal attractions; Dolphin Cove, Dolphin Nursery, Orca Underwater Viewing, Shark Encounter, Wild Arctic (Habitat) and many more. The organization first started with the intention of learning more about animals in order to educate the public about different behaviors of each animal. Trainers at Seaworld are offered the opportunity to get hands-on training with animals and are eventually are allowed to entertain the public with the skills they have acquired.
The Sneeches is one of a collection of stories that was published by beloved childhood author Dr. Seus in August of 1961. It portraits a story of two groups of “Sneeches” who reside on a beach community together. However, things are not happy for all of them. There are several underlying issues present in the Sneetch community that fall into the various social determinants of health. The most obvious of the five would be the Social and Community Context.
Many people tend to believe that solving problems like global reef bleaching is a problem for the government agencies to take care of and pay to fix but it is actually the responsibility of us all as inhabitants of this earth. Many organizations will accept money and volunteers to help clean the reefs and work to bring them back to their prior states. A major event that many people have contributed towards are coral reef cleanups. A state that heavily participates in these cleanups is Florida. The Florida Department of Environmental Protection hosts many reef cleanups in various counties and even offer giveaways for participating.
There are many people who make a positive impact on this problem as well as a negative impact.These people are called Stakeholders and the following are stakeholders on the issue of Shark Extinction. Rob Stewart was a Canadian photographer, filmmaker, conservationist and most importantly he was an advocate for Sharks. He spent his life learning about sharks and finally decided to go underwater and meet the Sharks. When he met the sharks he knew that he seemed like a threat to them, but after spending days in the ocean with them he learned how majestic they were to our ecosystem. To spread awareness about sharks he created a documentary called Sharkwater.
Introduction In order for a coral reef to be productive and healthy, the water quality in the ocean should be maintained. Water quality not only affects coral reefs, but the other organisms that live on it and are involved with the natural food chain. Some of the factors that can influence water quality are nutrients, temperature, salinity, dissolved oxygen, turbidity, light, and chlorophyll present. Water is essential to every living organism because it helps with respiration, maintaining body temperature, digestion and provides energy. This experiment involved taking water samples from Ferry Reach off the BIOS dock and analyzing different factors to determine general conclusions about how water quality affects reef ecosystems.
Provide scientific advice to related management authorities with regards to cetacean behavior and ecology in Walker Bay. Materials and methods Study site The study site (Fig.1) is situated in Walker Bay which is located on the coast of South Africa, stretching between 34.628, 34.418° S and 19.123, 19.292° E (van Beuningen 2013). The Walker Bay Marine Protected Area (Fig.1) is seasonally closed from 1 June to 30 November during the southern right whale breeding season and divided into two sections, including a whale sanctuary that is closed to all anthropogenic activities and a Restricted Area that is open to permitted boat-based whale-watching vessels and line fishing (de Villiers 2014). The Walker Bay Marine Protected area (Fig.1) is enclosed by the following points: The Westcliffe bea-con 34º25'.782” S; 19º13'.768” E then east and south east along the coastline to a point north of the Gans Bay North breakwater 34º34'.681” S; 19º20'.628” E to the Westcliffe beacon 34º25'.782” S; 19º13'.768” E. The Whale Sanctuary and Restricted Area (Fig.1) is divided by a line stretching from a point onshore at Sopiesklip 34º27'.1995” S; 19º20'.119” E to a point offshore of Sopiesklip 34º29'.655” S; 19º16'.80”
Adela Papiez Granitz Accelerated English 9 22 March 2017 Outline Marine Biologists: Saving the Environment One Animal at a Time Thesis: Marine biology is a demanding job requiring working with marine animals, and having many qualifications and courses to take, as well as years of training, with many fulfilling rewards. Generally, marine biology is the study of organisms, their relationship to the environment, and their behavior, in addition to studying the chemical aspects of bodies of saltwater ("At A Glance" & "NOAA Fisheries"). In marine biology, you do independent research and teamwork ("Job Description"). Can be based on a specific species, organism, or behavior, technique, or ecosystem ("Marine Careers"). Observations and notes are very
