And so have their ancestors. The tradition of them living off of the fish will be gone. Alaska has very clean water and that is why it is very rich in wildlife. If the Pebble Mine is approved, acid drainage will occur and leave the crystal clean water polluted with many bad chemicals. The chemicals ruin the salmon's sense of smell which will kill them.
Elia Kazan’s 1954 film On the Waterfront is a crime drama starring legendary actor Marlon Brando as Terry Malloy, a former prize-fighting boxer turned dock worker employed by Johnny Friendly (portrayed by Lee J. Cobb), the corrupt leader of the local dock workers union. After witnessing the murder of a fellow co-worker and friend, Joey Doyle, Terry is faced with the difficult decision of speaking against Friendly, a long-time family friend and the boss of his older brother Charley, in court in relation to the mob-esque activities of the dockers union, or keeping his mouth shut in an effort to preserve the relationship, and also his own safety.
The Northwest Coast Indians are believed to have begun living on the west coast area of what we now know as Alaska, Washington State, Oregon, California, and British Columbia, Canada over 10,000 years ago. The Bella Coola, Haida, Nootka, and Tlingit are just a few of the tribes that make up the Northwest Coast Indians who were known as the richest Native American’s due to the large quantity of natural resources that were available to them in this region. Living along the coast, there was so much fish available for them to eat. They enjoyed such fish as salmon, halibut and cod.
I can see it through the thing that the main character who can be an environmental protection or a biologist said about the Endangered Species Act also the place where she is working. They are trying to protect the salmon and it is the right thing to do with the endangered species. “Protecting an endangered species means changing the practices in an entire ecosystem to safeguard their survival. It means managing the loss of their habitat, the turbidity of their waters, the surface water runoff from the streets that threatens them, and the effluents from the wastewater that disrupt their endocrine systems and, if unchecked, will cause their extinction.” (Keith, 1) When you change any ecosystem of any species will be at high risk when that species do not adapt to the new environment, but with the management and gradual change, we really can save the species is nearing extinction.
The oysters are an integral element in any saltwater ecosystem, including the Chesapeake Bay ecosystem. The oysters are a significant component of the Chesapeake Bay ecosystem due to their ability to filter particles from water, which results in a cleaner water quality (Jacobson, 2013). The bay is currently experiencing a long-lasting drought, and the Department of Natural Resources is concerned that such crisis will leave a repercussion for the Chesapeake Bay water quality. The salinity level of the bay has been greatly affected by drought, which is influencing the oyster population of the bay. Historically, the salinity level of the bay has been 10 to 13 parts per thousand (ppt). Salinity is the measure of all the salts dissolved in water
To those residing on the eastern coast near Maryland, Virginia, and Pennsylvania, the problem of the Chesapeake Bay is obvious. The bay lacks water clarity, has difficulties sustaining aquatic life, and faces population threatening issues like dead zones and algae blooms. There are a myriad of ways in which the bay is polluted, however the most direct link to the bay’s poor water clarity is the overflowing amounts of nutrient and sediment pollution. Bay clarity is crucial, not only for a pretty appearance, but also for the health of the bay grasses and fish living in the bay.
The effect of agricultural runoff in the Chesapeake Bay watershed It is almost impossible to turn on the news without hearing about the turmoil of pollution, and how it is negatively affecting life worldwide. But have you stopped to think about how pollution is directly affecting your daily lives? Water is the heartbeat of all life, and without it nothing could thrive. Odds are, if you live within the northern mid-atlantic you get some or all of your water from the Chesapeake Bay, or one of its watersheds. Years of agricultural runoff from large industrial farms has lead to contamination of the Bay, endangering not only the lives of the wildlife, but also our own.
The Alaskan village of Shishmaref is located on an island Sarichef, which is five miles away from the Seward Peninsula. Shishref is an Inupiat village and, it has been inhabited for several centuries. The men in Shishmaref have hunted for seals by driving out over the sea ice with snowmobiles. Since the early nineteen-nineties, villagers started to notice that the sea level was changing. The ice was starting to form later in the fall, and also to break up earlier in the spring.
John Winthrop: A Puritan Leader who became the first Governor of Massachusetts Bay Colony. From January 12, 1587/8 - March 2, 1649, John Winthrop led a group of English Puritans to the new world, joined the Massachusetts Bay Company in 1629 and became their Governor on April 8, 1630. He was the major backbone in molding the Colony’s government, also shaping its Legislative policy.
Oysters filter out the water and purify it. Throughout the Bay there have been oyster farms that are protected by the county to help filter the water. Keeping these vital creatures safe could be the key to saving the Bay. If we work together, slowly, Chesapeake Bay could return to a clean and
The New World was home to Native Americans before it was ever home to Europeans. Europeans, mostly the English were who began to shape it to their needs and personal identities. New England, for example was considered to be tight knit and as a result of having families developed schools, and churches to fit their lifestyle. New England and Chesapeake were distinct societies during the colonization era of North America with different settlement patterns, motivations, and economies.
Although drilling in Alaska had its pro’s, it's con’s are more important. Some documents showed that it can be good but at the same time there would be a problem. Drilling would cause economic factors, environmental problems, and other problems. The best thing is to be safe than
The new jobs will help many people in the country come out of poverty, which interests not only our country, but the economy also. While building the pipeline, the demand for metals, pipes, valves, pumps and anything else needed, will increase. Cities can also make hotels, restaurants, and other facilities to help the pipeline workers, therefore creating more jobs. This will help local cities economy.
Faysal: However, being within the boundaries of the national park, this is still an issue even if it is a currently successful mine. The main solutions to this threat would be that CPAWS or the Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society will suppress the threat and if the project is permitted to operate, strong, enforceable environmental measures of the highest standard are required of the company to minimize its impact on the Nahanni ecosystem. Other than CPAWS, the tourists and general community may come together to raise awareness about this threat and attempt to either abolish or diminish the threat. Matthew: The current solution would be the conditions are properly monitored so that the project is put to an end, otherwise, if permitted, CPAWS’ standards must be set incredibly high so that the mine does not damage the ecosystem and environment of the national
Four million birds are estimated to use the Sea each day in the winter, more than any other resource in the nation” (DesertUSA, The Salton Sea, CA). Some rare birds that can be seen on special occasion are Bald Eagles, White Ibises, Pine Warblers, Red Crossbills, and over fifty other rarities. Some common birds are: killdeer, Caspian terns, American Avocets, Great Egrets, burrowing owls, Black-necked stilts, and Black skimmers (5). One species, the Yuma Clapper rail, relies heavily on the survival of the Salton Sea because around 40% of all Yuma Clapper rails in the United States live in the basin. These birds were listed as endangered on March 11, 1967 and also rely on the basin for crayfish to eat.
