hypothesis correct, this would be the best way to prove my point. Get your Pop-bottle, and start measuring it. It is much easier when you measure out your Pop-bottle, so you know the exact and accurate placements of wherever you decide to place your fins/cone. Once you have measured out your Pop-bottle, decide where you are going to wrap the masking tape around. For my sake, I decided to cover the center of the bottle with masking tape.
research. Ecosystem To look at the ecosystem of the Southern Ocean, we will be referencing the food web created by Laws. The whales that are going to be focused are species of baleen whales found in the southern ocean. These species are the fin whale, the blue whale, the sei whale, the humpback whale, and the minke whale. As shown in the food web, the main food source of these whales is krill. This is important to note in regards to the issues of prey switching, as well as krill surplus
Every year Florida’s wildlife animal numbers decrease at an alarming rate. Endangered animals exist all over the world, but Florida’s official state animal is one of the most endangered animals in the entire world. The main reason some animals become declared as endangered is humans. Humans have caused a huge toll on the wildlife’s lifespan and have become a burden in their natural way of living. It is how the human population behaves that decides whether these animals can live a normal life or pushes

"People always wonder whether I believe SeaWorld should be closed down. I always say no. They have tremendous financial resources and could play a key role in creating sea sanctuaries which could be a profit-making endeavor. I believe people would flock to a site where a killer whale is being a killer whale for the first time -- something infinitely more satisfying than seeing a killer whale dance the Macarena." - Gabriela Cowperthwaite. Cowperthwaite, the director of the documentary film Balckfish
Isabela Island, the largest island of the Galápagos archipeggio, seemed to rise straight out of the water. The sedimentary rock cliffs were rusty brown, but were covered with life. Red and black crabs rested on the surface, while blue-footed boobies gracefully dived into the water to catch sardines. Baby nazca boobies peered out of their nests to see a small inflatable boat, known as a panga, bobbing in the water. Our guide, Christina, enthusiastically shared her knowledge of these animals to my
markings. The sides and back are light grey, with white “flames” reaching up along the sides of its body. The underside is whitish, while the face, flippers, dorsal fin and tail are all black. There is a crescent-shaped black mark between its blowhole and eyes. It has a short snout and is easily recognized by the round shape of the dorsal fin. Females grow to 1.7 metres long and weigh up to 50 kg. Males are slightly smaller and lighter. They are known to live up to twenty years. The calves live on their
It is hard to imagine a life without the childhood trips to the zoo, the circus, and other animal based attractions. It is even harder to imagine a daily life without digging in to a hamburger and washing it down with a cold glass of milk. It is almost impossible to imagine a life where one does nothing wrong, but it subject to abuse and torture for selfish purposes of another species. Animal exploitation is a common yet overlooked practice all around the world. Helpless animals are poked, prodded
The Crown of Thorns Starfish robot (COTSbot) developed by the Queensland University of Technology will kill the crown-of-thorns starfish (COTS) – which is responsible for destroying about 50% of Australia's Great Barrier Reef, Discovery News reports. COTSbot, which operates autonomously, recently performed well on trial test and its creators plan to deploy it in December. Until then, the robot needs to be tested on the reef. HOW IT DETECTS THE PREY In an interview with the BBC, COTSbot researcher
Could you live in a bathtub for 40 years? Marine parks such as SeaWorld hold many sea animals prisoner to confined concrete tanks with little emotional and physical interaction. Blackfish, a documentary that sheds light on the dark side of SeaWorld and it's abuse on Tilikum (a killer whale). Similarly, Lolita, an orca whale at Miami Seaquarium has been living in captivity for forty-seven years in poor conditions. Peta brings attention to this matter by making a "Free Lolita" poster with the celebrity
