Animals are getting sick and ending up dead. It is an extremely serious problem that should be taken much more seriously.
Oil Spills Effect Wildlife How do you clean up wildlife after an oil spill? Oil spills are dangerous because it has lasting effects on all life cycles. It is important to look at all species that are affected by an oil spill. Oil spills effect the carbon cycle directly. They also effect the food chains in the water and on land.
Some dolphins are even carrying their young when they are slaughtered. The government attempts to hide this terrible circumstance from the general public of Japan; however, there is an even bigger issue at hand which the government also attempts to conceal. Dolphin meat has an extremely high level of mercury content. Mercury is generated after coal is burned. The mercury deposits and distributes itself into the ocean and into the food chain.
There are many criticisms towards BP. Many of the major oil companies that operate in the Gulf of Mexico distanced themselves from BP and criticized the design of Macondo well which was the initial reason for the Because of the BP oil spill many of the working industries in the Gulf of Mexico were highly affected. Since a large portion of the marine life was affected a number of the oil fishing industries have been shut down. This is because the oil spill has caused mutations to start occurring in the water, thus creating problems for the future species. Fishing industries have had to shut down to prevent harm to any of their buyers.
Jaden Knutson Mrs. Urbanec English 10 9 April, 2014 Save the Sea Mermaid Manatees, also known a sea mermaids or cows, are on the brink of extinction with funding and environmental protection required to save these amazing animals. Humans are the biggest threat to their existence. Humans have carelessly injured and killed thousands of manatees by slicing and dicing them with boat propellers, all in the name of entertainment. Other negative factors include pollution, environmental reduction due to human encroachment, and poaching with manatees consumed as food. The existence of red tides is another factor posing a natural threat.
Every day human pollution such as “boat paint that runs into the ocean”, Chemicals that help grow food that run into the ocean, and global warming harms the health of whales every day. Whales are hunted for many reason, but in Japan they are mostly hunted because they are “considered a delicacy in Japan” (“Why Are Whales Endangered”2). Whales actually take up aro... ... middle of paper ... ...es other than to lash out and attack human beings like the have before. It seems that the humans are the blessed ones that treat a good majority of God’s creation terribly, whales being just one of the many. It is easy for the humans to hide the terrible ways that these whales are being treated from the rest of society, but if society does not see what is going on and speak up for the whales, then future generations might not even know what a whale is.
Lit Review Sharks are some of the most feared predators by humans and of course my favorite animal. Their numbers are becoming dangerously close to extinction. The elimination of sharks would affect our entire ecosystem in ways we cannot even fathom. The biggest cause for the decline in shark population is shark fishing. Shark fishing is “the practice of cutting of the shark’s fins and throwing the still living shark back into the sea to die.” (Kettles) My goal is to explain how shark finning, which will lead to the extinction of sharks, will effect our environment and discuss the importance of their conservation.
When an oilrig spills or leaks it pollutes and contaminates the water all around, and it is known to spread very quickly. The oil clings to everything it touches; including rocks, sand, plants, and even grasses. Once the oil takes over the area, it makes the land unsuitable for living. One common argument for why it should not be banne... ... middle of paper ... ...rilling, and this would even open up jobs for those people. In conclusion, I believe it is safe to say that if offshore drilling is not banned it will be very detrimental to our society.
How bad can oil spilling be to the environment? Oil spills are bad for oceans, rivers, animals, fish, and birds that live in and around it. What we are going to go over is how they happen, how bad they are, and how they clean the mess up. “Oil spills are commonly occurred by the mistakes of men” (Oil Spills). The careless mistakes of bad maintains on vessels and equipment has played a part in a lot of oil spill accidents.”Some other oil spilling is when people do not want to pay for somebody to come and get it so they just dump it somewhere or some companies do the same thing” (Oil Spills.
As pollution continues to grow and become much worse, organizations create new laws to help reduce or end some of the major problems in our seas. Oil Spills disturb the environment and produce a threat to the animals living in that area. Both ships and refineries release oil into the rivers and oceans which leads to the damage and death of plants and animals (Leggett 25). Exxon Valdez, a famous tanker that split in Alaska, spilled eleven million gallons of crude oil into the oceans, damaging everything around it (Earle 145). A Deepwater Horizon oil rig exploded and released sixty thousand barrels of oil each day (Hollar 20).
