The practice of shark finning is inhumane; we should never treat mammals in such a cruel manner. Every single day 200,000 sharks are butchered alive for their fins and sometimes their tails. These are hacked off with a knife, and the remaining carcasses are thrown back into the ocean like rubbish. Unable to swim, the shark suffocates and dies a slow painful death. The cruel
GENOSIDAL OTTERS The deadly sea otter is a threat to many marine animals. The vicious creatures prey on poor unsuspecting creatures. They are regularly seen with a clam or mussel and a rock that has been crudely seized from the ocean floor. These monsters will place the rock on their chests, and repeatedly bash the defenseless shellfish against it until it breaks to reveal the meat of the creature; where it will ravage essence of the critter like a barbarian. They also prey on many delicate aquatic creatures as the innocent sea urchin, unarmed crab, unprotected squid, indefensible octopus, and fish.
The Comparison of JAWS And Free Willy 2: The Adventure Home Some films often have themes and messages in them that are only relevant to the time the film was made. One such example is the movie Jaws, which depicts a shark as the main antagonist. For its time the movie was incredibly successful playing upon the fears people had of sharks while swimming. However with awareness of the planet increasing and people understanding that sharks are endangered species which humans are invading their habitat in the first place, movies like Jaws are less acceptable. This is the reason why most rip off movies of Jaws are these terrible B grade movies.
Needless to say, the shark simply refuses to live with a big hole in its heart and dies, pouring gallons of blood into the ocean in the process. The good news is that Jonas Taylor manages to get out of the shark's bloody insides and successfully emerges from the Meg's open mouth. The bad news is that he surfaces too fast and had to be carried away to a recompression chamber immediately if he wanted to live or else he would die of the
“The big shark followed. No one asked what kind of shark it was; there was no question. Everything about it, from its size to its color to its shape to the cold ineluctability of its assault, broadcast its identity: Great White Shark.” (Lawrence, 57) The great white shark, commonly known as the most dangerous predator to lurk the seas, has been given names and symbols that superficially anthropomorphize its existence on earth. (Chivers, 22) To most scientists and field researchers, great white sharks are mystical and fascinating creatures that are important parts of the eco-system. But to the average human, sharks are demonized into vicious monsters.
Some were even thrown over alive, due to the threat of sharks following the slave ships. This threw the balance of the earth in two spots. One was an unusual number of human bodies being dumped into a place where they usually were not. This threw off the balance of the animal life, such as more sharks eating human remains. This leads to the second component which was the increasing number of sharks following slave ships.
The shark moves with great ease through the water, making it deadly fast. Also, when the author says 'part vulture, part wolf, part neither – for his blood was cold', this adds to the poem by telling us that the shark is the most deadly predator. The vulture lies in wait for the perfect moment to strike, but there is no room for fault. And like the shark, a lone wolf hunts alone in silence, with deadly speed and never gets exhausted. Also, the shark's blood is cold - cold blood usually means evil, lonely, unhappy.
Throughout the film, I felt angry, sad, feeling sorry for the helpless dolphins until the scene where the director shows the actual killing taking place. The scenes were so disturbing: the water colored bright red from the dolphin’s blood, the dolphins, dying slowly and painfully, the fishermen walking over them. I would say there was a strong beginning and middle to the documentary, but the ending wasn’t
Major threats causing a decrease in the sea otter (Enhydra lutris) population Introduction: Topic: What we want to find out about the sea otters and why. * Introduce sea otters * Sea otters current IUCN status (Burdin, A. et al, 2011) * List Reasons for endangerment (then talk about in each paragraph): * Habitat requirements * Oil spills- when ingested damages internal organs. * Predator/prey-increasing predator attacks from killer whales. * Over exploitation- get tangled in thin monofilament line gill nets and drown. * Polluted oceans- cat litter dumping toxoplasmosis into oceans.
Plastic disposal in our oceans is becoming a fast problem that needs to be addressed by every individual on the planet. Plastic in the ocean is a devastating epidemic that is threatening our planet with every plastic bottle that to make its way to the recycle bins, becoming a problem for marine animals, humans, and is an issue that we can easily help. Seabirds, sea turtles, fish, and marine mammals often feed on plastic debris that they mistake for food. Ingesting this plastic kills marine mammals. Whales and sea turtles often mistake plastic bags for squid, and birds often mistake plastic pellets for fish eggs.
