Nautical news - summer 2004 - our ocean location - discipline

 

Our bushel are home to many aquatic mammals, fish, turtles, corals and others. The delicate calculate connecting man and the ocean is constantly being challenged by the hassle of our society. Most of our globe is roofed by water, a de rigueur ingredient of human life. The state of our lot be supposed to be greatest in our minds in order for characteristic of life for all species to hang about as it is.

Manatees - an dying out species The communal name for Florida's gentle giants is the West Indian manatee. They are found during rivers, springs and shallow coastal waters of Florida and adjacent states. Weighing up to 3500 pounds and having a round face and plump shape, scientists accept as true they are the 'mermaids' identified by sailors in chronological lore. Manatees consume 5-10 percent of their body authority daily and spend 6-8 hours a day feeding. They are plant-eaters and are generally found grazing along the same areas as recreational boaters. This fact financial statement for copious killings and defacement of manatees in Florida each year. Propeller scars are so customary on manatees that there is a preset index of photographs to allow identification of those by their scars.

According to the February 2004 count of manatees in Florida by the Florida Fish & Flora and fauna Conservation Agency there are only 2568 left behind in Florida. Even with this low number, there are pains by some to cut off manatees from the scarce species list.

Dolphins - our beloved ocean creature Humans love dolphins since of their smiling face. Dolphins aren't especially smiling, this is just the shape of their mouths. Dolphins are mammals. They have hair, breathe air and give birth to live young. The hair is evident at birth, a few beard here and there. Dolphins can weigh up to 800 pounds and have lived up to 50 years--the episode we have been tracking them. Dolphins eat fish and swallow them whole. Dolphins give birth to one baby at a time and the baby commonly stays with the care for the first three years, budding fast on mother's milk. Dolphins are not scarce at this time, but the Naval Living thing Armor Act of 1972 requires us to steer clear of them. So enjoy them from afar!

Sea Turtles-Florida's labors for recovery All species of sea turtles are dying out or threatened and many of them lay their eggs along the coast of South Florida. Loggerheads, Leatherbacks, Green sea turtles have all been nesting here. South Florida is also one of the nation's best tourist destinations. The beaches are populated with high rise condominiums and hotels. Some cities have accepted 'no lights' laws to help these hatchlings find their way to the ocean as a replacement for of the highways to be killed as the babies adhere to the brightest light. Spinning the illumination down or off late at night helps keep these babies. The rare Kemp's Ridley has also been dotted in Florida. Many of our local character centers lead guided tours to watch the huge turtles come to shore every year or so to lay their eggs. Each turtle might lay up to 100 eggs. Inside 43-75 days the hatchlings are ready to find the ocean, and fight for survival. They will come again to the same beaches 25 or more years later to lay their eggs. Stay tuned for the news of this years' counts of nests in South Florida.

WHAT IS THE Important CAUSE OF WATER POLLUTION? Most pollution comes from common locations of pollution discharge considerably than one aspect location. Florida's pollution is stormwater runoff. This is precipitation flowing off the land's ascend which carries litter, oil and chemicals into the adjoining channel also at once or by means of storm drains.

A guide made all the way through the Youth Environmental Programs, Inc states: "Water pollution prevention does not begin when you are in or near the water. It is a apply which needs to be implemented in all areas of your life. "
