Wonder what our planet would look like without oceans? Then this animation by NASA will blow your mind.
A new study concludes that plastic from tires generates vastly more microplastic waste than any other source. It’s also carried by the wind, hence the title Atmospheric transport is a major pathway of microplastics to remote regions. The average emissions are about .81 kg (1.78 pounds) per capita, for […]
Six out of seven sea turtle species are threatened with extinction. We need more connected ocean sanctuaries to protect them! Watch their story below and sign the petition calling for a global network of ocean sanctuaries to protect the turtles’ homes: http://www.greenpeace.org/turtlejourney This Video was created by the […]
Researchers found that the oceans are dramatically changing due to climate change, the latest evidence of a warming world. The planet’s oceans were the warmest in recorded history in 2019, according to a new analysis published Monday. An international team of researchers analyzed temperature data from sources around the […]
Shark skin might look perfectly smooth, but inspect it under a microscope and you’ll notice something strange. The entire outer surface of a shark’s body is actually covered in sharp, little scales known as denticles. More remarkable still, these denticles are incredibly similar to human teeth, as they’re […]
For over 40 years, Sea Shepherd has been tremendously effective in defending the oceans against poaching and other illegal activities at sea. In addition, their work to enforce international conservation laws and uphold the protection for critically endangered species – such as the vaquita dolphin and hawksbill turtle […]
Our Ocean is dying. Plankton is disappearing and scientists do not know why. Actually scientists not in the employment of the Canadian Department of Fisheries and Oceans do know why. We should all know why. Here is Paul Watson’s (Sea Shepherd) take on why: “Since 1950 we have […]
Scientists have designed a tiny robot-fish that is programmed to remove microplastics from seas and oceans by swimming around and adsorbing them on its soft, flexible, self-healing body. Microplastics are the billions of tiny plastic particles which fragment from the bigger plastic things used every day such as […]
In estimations of ocean heat content—important when assessing and predicting the effects of climate change—calculations have often presented the rate of warming as a gradual rise from the mid-20th century to today. However, new research from UC Santa Barbara scientists Timothy DeVries and Aaron Bagnell could overturn that […]
