Bradley brobst English II 12/14/09 Is the mega shark real or myth? Too many people believe that the megladon (mega shark) is not real, but the people have not seen the evidence of this horrific creature. There have been many sightings, photos, and some sort of video that can be plausible. Many bones of the great shark have been found of the shark. The shark is to be said that the length of the shark is about four times the size of a full size great white shark and about the width of a car.
Members of a pod often cooperate in hunts. An average-sized orca will eat 551 pounds of food a day. Orcas live in small pods of about 6 - 40 whales; they are very social animals. The bonds between members of Killer Whale pods are strong and can last for life. The members of a pod hunt together, attacking even very large prey and then sharing it.
Contaminating these waters will not only harm the wildlife, but it will kill a source of food that is so dominant in Newfoundland, and also will harm hundreds of people’s jobs. Oil spills cause a lot of problems in our ocean and to our marine life. Everywhere you look people are trying to create a more sustainable ocean, and this is hard to do when there is so much pollution and threats to our environment all around us. We, as youth need to step up and try to make a change and help to make our province a better place. We can help thousands of animals survive by taking action against oil drilling in our
There is a 250,000 dollar fine for anyone who is caught fishing for a Great White. If I were in charge of trying to keep the Great Whites from becoming extinct, the first thing I would do is make sure that the seals and sea lions are protected, because without them, the shark would not survive due to a lack of food sources. Next, I would make it a heavier fine for anyone caught fishing for the sharks. Because these are a rare breed of shark, it will be hard to monitor their numbers, but I would want to tag as many as possible, so I would be able to study and track where they go.
Comparing slavery to the whales is one of the ways Cowperthwaite portrays SeaWorld as being evil. SeaWorld makes many false claims to convince the general public that they are in the right. Claims such as lifespan (25-30 years more with veterinary care), Dorsal Collapse (25 percent), the whales are a family, and aggression is accidental or the trainers fault. In actuality lifespan reaches 80-90 in the wild, Dorsal
FRANCES WALDEN CONSERVATION BIOLOGY WRITE UP OF ENDANGERED SPECIES DECEMBER 6TH, 2007 THE ANGEL SHARK (Squatina squatina). In the past few decades, the interest by many in protecting and preserving the world’s biodiversity have increased. Human activities, around the globe, possess a threat to biological communities.

The fleet, led by Nisshin Maru, were only able to catch a fifth of their planned quota due to the harassment of the anti-whaler activists. As a result of the aggressive attack of the June 2011 expedition, Japan continued to fear “sabotage and violence from whaling activists.” In July 2011 the Japanese requested Australia “to provide a higher level of protection for whaling vessels than we provide for anything else in the ocean.” Although the Australian government agreed to some of the issues that the Japanese whalers raised, such as the increasing violence being dealt by anti-whaling
The viewer is afraid of what he cannot see and what is out there and yet the windows are fogged up and there is a killer shark close to the boat. This adds another dimension tot the suspense of the scene. These windows could have been clear and you would have been able to see everything but instead they are fogged up to give to viewer a sense of uncertainty. The next biggest piece of the scene is the first aid kit that is located right about Quint’s head. They could have chosen to put that anywhere but the director chose to put it right at the top of Quint’s head in this scene.
The humpback whale and North Atlantic right whale are the top two that you may see in New Jersey waters though other whales may migrate there. These whales are large and move slowly. The whaling industry banned these endangered whales from being hunted when they saw the numbers decline. The whales are still at risk for death by getting tangled in fishing nets and colliding with ships or boats that are fishing, exploring for oil and whale watching. Indiana Bat The Indiana Bat has been on the endangered species list for New Jersey for over 40 years.
