Tuna need conservation-what do Fisheries Commissions do?

Tuna need conservation-what do Fisheries Commissions do?

Posted Sat, 07 Dec 2013 11:59:00 GMT by Colin Ricketts

With populations in the Atlantic very low, the bulk of the Japanese expensive taste for tuna is catered for in the distant Pacific islands. The need is to regulate these small ports and stop the rot before 2 more species become simply another gap in the ecosystem.

We really can't avoid following the wise words of Dr.Mike Chase unless we really are willing to live without many of the most important life forms ever evolved.

When will the bees and other helpful insects be protected in the same way as (some) mammals and birds? It's obvious that the fruit industries will collapse without them, so for the most selfish of reasons, we know we have to try and preserve these species. Unfortunately, there are always those who suffer from short sight, or simply greed for bigger and bigger short-term profits.

When the world looks back on the Age of Dirty Energy, fossil fuels will be a laugh. How will we manage our individual and corporate needs for electricity when finally a choice of renewables becomes available? What choices will there be?

Not well known or noticed, some of the oldest landlubbers on the planet are fascinating as well as useful. They show us when and how the continents spread out in this paper. Have a look at the Onychophora, the velvet 'worms' or Peripatidae!

The wonder of a beautiful sea “monster” is never lost, but while some species like the great leatherback turtle have varying fortunes, many birds and others are in the process of disappearing for ever.

Yet again, the Hainan group of seaturtles911 get a recovered turtle into the sea, after she was found emaciated and hungry in the Pacific. Finally we get up-to-date with these busy conservationists.

The golfing fraternity and sorority have joined forces with Seaturtles911 to put back a little of that we have taken, in the case of hawksbills and green turtles. It’s about time that sport generally associated itself with clean water and pristine environment, without destroying any useful habitats for rare species.

When humans meet, the interbreeding and cross-cultural exchanges show up in history as major advances. When Neanderthals met, it was often only as small family groups, as large tribes are not recorded. If they met for dinner though, the outcome may not have been as you would have thought.

The conservation - or extinction, of little-known Asian mammals

Posted Fri, 22 Nov 2013 10:07:51 GMT by Dave Armstrong

Mammals survive only in habitats that we keep safe. In Asia, Africa and South America, the final discoveries are being made of almost extinct species, but they won't last long! We have reached the end of jungle, the loss of true discovery, but there is a possibility we can maintain our wonder at these individuals with adaptations to the forest that belong in our ancestors’ dreams.

How can we do something to keep our precious coral reefs? This research helps immensely by noting all the possible natural herbivore (fish) resources we can use to propagate the corals themselves, by getting rid of their algal enemies.

What can we do, miles away from the beautiful forests that are being torn down, as we watch on satellite. The argument that some countries gambled with their own forests centuries ago is irrelevant, as wooden ships are no longer tools of warfare and sheer greed drives these loggers on to final destruction of whole systems.

Is the incredible damage and loss of life in the Philippines linked to more severe storms as our climate changes? Credibility of any detractors seems lacking, as we wait for even more signals that we need to construct strong solutions at Warsaw, and not wait until Paris in 2015.

Losing Our Grizzly Bears: the fall of the wild

The grizzly bear, Ursus arctos, with 3 American subspecies, is one of the last symbols of wilderness remaining in North America. Already in danger from a failing habitat, the grizzly now faces its potential demise at the hands of political ladder-climbing. Will we act in time to preserve the species or allow this majestic and misunderstood creature to fade into the annals of history?

How the lion and the tiger were related to American lions, the jaguar and several extinct species fascinates to the point of absorption. These are legendary, iconic animals whose presence on the planet has always caused us to admire their adaptations and abilities. And to fear their tremendous power, of course.

Using the energy within our bodies!

Posted Mon, 11 Nov 2013 12:40:01 GMT by JW Dowey

We need to be greener. So why not use the plentiful energy within the body. It won’t power a city, but the uses of 'internal energy sources' would be very interesting. New energy sources have not been researched inside the organism, but the potential in the human body and in environmental monitoring within other species, for example is beyond belief.
