A great little animation looking at the issues of plastics in our Oceans. In fact not just the large plastic that floats or traps marine life, but also the micro plastics that are to tiny to see and even harder to understand what they might do to the Oceans
This weeks Video of the Week comes from the Sea of Cortez and features the a family who find a Humpback Whale trapped in a fishing net and close to death. What follows is a condensed version of the hours long battle to cut the Whale free from the nets and seeing it finally break free and put of a display of possible gratitude!
This video again highlights the dangers of fishing nets to all forms of marine life.
Yu, an approximately 25-year-old female loggerhead turtle, has just received her 27th pair of artificial front legs at the Suma Aqualife Park in Kobe. It is thought Yu lost her front legs during a predator attack. Being able to swim only at 60% efficiency, the new flippers are designed to be less painful then previous versions and increase Yu’s mobility in the water.
