Must whales and dolphins be subjected to deafening noise that will cause more than 3.5 million instances of temporary and/or permanent hearing loss?
The constant whine from fleets of motorized vessels crisscrossing the global seas, sonar blasts created by military exercises, and deafening booms from air guns used in oil and gas exploration have created a frightening environment for many marine species.
There's an old adage that the environment is never saved -- just continually being saved. And the U.S. Navy's testing and training with high-intensity active sonar is a perfect example.
We would like to introduce you to several people who made such an impressive impact with their grant that we've awarded them another grant to continue seeding the change.
Even though I am a teenager in Chicago, I believe I can make a difference. And that's to stop feeding into this multi-billion dollar industry.
When fishing gear scoops up, hooks, entangles, or otherwise harms another creature not destined for market, it's called bycatch: an innocuous term for a senseless waste of marine life. Bycatch occurs all over the world's oceans on a massive scale.
For the past year I have extensively covered the 'Global War Against Nature.' Without question the relentless massacring of whales has been the most g...
What Hermanus is most famous for is its giant guests who stop by once a year to frolic in the waters of Walker Bay.

This is definitely a good news/bad news story, another example of what happens when people and cetaceans (whales and dolphins) encounter one another. The fact is, it nearly always works out in the humans' favor.
Despite mounting evidence that global warming is leading to devastating environmental disasters in the Pacific region, the U.S. and its partners are suspicious of climate change advocates. Rather brazenly, Washington and its Pacific allies spy on those who are intent on reining in global warming.
Members of a small nation with the hearts of a lion are standing up to big oil in order to protect fish, and their fishing way of life.
This week as the brutal 'War Against Nature' raged on, the conscious world fought back as hundreds of thousands of people from around the globe united...
"Save the Whales" was a rallying cry of 1970's environmentalism. The great sea mammals had been hunted to the brink of extinction and grassroots activists rallied to save them. But there might not have been any whales left to protect if the world hadn't embraced petroleum in place of whale oil a century earlier.
Perhaps the owners of Toys-R-Us and their advertising team have been reading Brave New World because this advertisement mocking nature and encouraging consumerism seems ripped right from Huxley's book.
