Blue Planet 2 has come out and it is LITERALLY THE MOST AMAZING THING EVER. Such amazing footage, I cried from the beauty and the jealousness I had for the divers and camera people who got to witness it in person.
I think it provides such valuable information, and thus for educational purposes, I have found you some links to episode 1 “One Ocean”. PARENTAL WARNING: These websites have pop-ups and adult ads, so be careful of spam. But this is the price to pay for FREE.
Episode 1 appeared October 29th and Episode 2 “The Deep Ocean” appears this Sunday, November 5th. They will keep coming out every Sunday until just before Christmas!
I applaud the scientist at California Fish and Wildlife who despite the fact that the government is not concerned with the deaths of thousands of sharks to be able to fund research into the cause, is working at home in his kitchen after his workday to find an answer- and it looks like that answer is a brain parasite that is spreading to other species.
Why is the government of California not concerned with this? Because the shark species population is not at risk. But after thousands of deaths and the deaths of other species (and commercially important species) because of this, how can they not be concerned?

This is a serious call to change the way we treat wastewater to remove such chemical compounds before they accumulate in the environment and in our own bodies.

It gives me hope that even if humans destroy each other, the ocean will live on!
Narwhals make headlines again!
This time, they are proving to be a huge help in researching climate change through melting glaciers.
