Despite common beliefs about the threat to human beings, they do not attack people without a definite or convincing reason; therefore, the commonly held view of the “man-eater” is erroneous. Consequently these marine animals should be protected but the shark hunting should be banned because of their high rate of extinction. In the period of Paleozoic Era, about 300 million years ago, marine life was arranged in a totally different way from now. Enormous creatures dwelled the aquatic depths and no smaller scale fish would approach them. For example, although it was a baleen whale, Archaeomysticetus was not like
Sharks can be divided into two main groups, large and small. The large sharks hunt for food so they are fast and agile. The small sharks usually hide in the ocean floor to catch prey and hide from predators. The gray and white, brown or blue-gray are mostly the fast and large sharks. The patterned sharks are the small slow sharks.
It is true that sharks are one of the animal kingdom’s most vicious predators; however, it is important to note that humans were not naturally included to the sharks’ list of preys. Encounters between sharks and humans only became disastrous when the latter had trespassed and disturbed its domain so as a result, the sharks perceive humans as a threat to them or to their pups if they are nursing. In some ways, “Jaws” provided justification for humans to slaughter sharks, henceforth; it had received some negative reviews from other spectators and critics. Unfortunately, the number of sharks in the wild is decreasing globally. The movie had encouraged resorts owner near the beaches to show the brutality of the shark instead of imposing the advocacies that would protect these sea creatures such as limiting the passage of people where sharks were known to thrive.
Not all people have it. In addition, the old man also shows his bravery when he had an epic battle against the sharks. Yes, a crew of sharks, not only one or two sharks. Can you imagine, being alone on the ocean, on the small boat and then you find yourself surrounded by the sharks that watch yourself? If I were in that situation, I might be very frustrated and chose to give up, because there is nothing I can do.
Imagine that you can’t even drink water or eat your favorite fish anymore. Oceana needs your help. They cannot do all of this on their own. This is why they are important. It is amazing at helping the creatures of the ocean and the ones who need fish and rely on the ocean to live.
In conclusion Blackfish is gives audiences a shocking, aggressive and deeply compelling look into cruel practices of marine parks for decades that will change the way you look at captive/trained killer whales and other animals. In watching this documentary has significantly opened my eyes regarding the brutal treatment and methods of capturing wild animals giving me a greater sympathy for orcas in parks such as SeaWorld. This startling documentary will surprise audiences as Cowperthwaite is unrelenting in showing the fatal consequences of keeping killer whales in captivity while also critiquing of the cruel and immoral practises of
Without sound editing this movie would not have the Hitchcock horror feel. Verna Fields did a great job blending everything together. The editor made sure through her editing style would make the shark look as authentic as possible. The best scenes in the movie take place on the boat. These are the scenes that makes Jaws great, the main characters trying their best to stay alive and kill the shark before it kills any more people.
Have you ever thought what would we be like without fish. How important is our marine life? Over fishing is a huge problem that needs to be brought to an end very quickly. Overfishing is an urgent matter that should not be pushed aside as if it was not as important as the rest. As a result of overfishing, we could lose 90% of ocean fish.
As humans, our world would be thrown into chaos if suddenly there were no light. However, deep at the bottom of the world’s oceans many organisms are surviving in the complete absence of light. From 200 metres below the surface of the sea, photosynthesis can no longer occur, as not enough sunlight can penetrate the water. From 1000 metres below the surface exists the “twilight zone” where the only wavelength of light that can penetrate through the vast amount of water is blue light (Yancy, 2011). This absence of light leads to multiple challenges for organisms living in the deep sea, such as obtaining food, escaping prey and finding mates.
The Cultural Effects of Coral Bleaching Located in warm, shallow waters, one species is near it’s extinction. Scientific studies has anticipated this for years, but many people do not understand the _damage this obsolescence would have on the environment. An essential animal in the ocean, coral, is, “home to 25% of all marine fish species,” according to The Reef Resilience Network, which specializes in helping save coral. Corals have very special tolerances to things like temperatures, salinity levels, and pollution, which causes coral stress, or bleaching. When bleaching occurs because of the unsuitable conditions, the corals expel the algae living in them, turns white, and dies, When corals die, thousands of sea creatures living around reefs
I have swum with Caribbean reef sharks in the Bahamas and have seen how beautiful and strong they truly are first hand. Sharks are a vital part to every ecosystem they are in and currently being killed at a rate that they cannot reproduce at. Alpha predators are a necessary component of eco-systems because they keep the populations of every trophic level below them in check. You can compare an eco-system to a skyscraper; you need every single part so the entire building does not fall apart. Sharks have the task of killing the wounded, old, and sick fish in schools to keep the stocks of fish healthy and plentiful.
To protect the Mako Shark species, they are protected by U.S. waters(Beardsley, 2015). Mako sharks are fascinating animals. They have long, slim bodies to enable them to swim at fast speeds. Makos live all around the world in central oceans. They have special adaptations they use to help them survive.
People don 't understand that this doesn 't just affect whales, it also effect people to because the belugas play a very important role in our ecosystem. If we don 't stop killing or hurting them right now later down the road we will pay for it. Later on in life if you start to see overwhelming amount of bad fish for an ecosystem and they are destroying it because there are no predators to keep the fish population down. Beluga whale help keep the ocean 's ecosystem healthy by eating fish and reducing the amount of fish that are bad for an environment. Belugas also are good for the deep sea because when anything dies and falls to the abyss from the topside they go through different layers of the ocean.
How is this process allowed or encouraged at SeaWorld when they are kept in a concrete pool? Each animal enclosure needs to be updated to meet the specific necessities of each animal. One risk posed by the current habitat for killer whales, is how long these animals spend at the surface in captivity. The whales can become sun burned and two killer whales have died from being bitten by a mosquito (Lewis, 2013). This is unheard of in the wild because the killer whales are able to swim away from pests such as mosquitos.
The whales, unable to handle the separation lash out while in captivity. Orcas should not live separated from the original pods, due to the reaction of captivity causing countless mental issues in the whales. If the whale hunters would only capture the sick whales, the orcas could learn how to thrive in the natural ocean life without fear of getting
