New Habits of the Polar Bear: How Climate Change Changes Behaviors
The image of a snowy-coated polar bear stranded on an island of ice has become an indelible symbol of climate change—for good reason. The bears, with a range limited to mostly inside the Arctic Circle, are on the front lines of one of Earth’s most fragile ecosystems.
Rising temperatures in the Arctic—they’re accelerating at twice the speed of the rest of the planet—are leaving less of the ice the bears depend on for hunting and foraging.
Between 1987 and 2004, the Western Hudson Bay population of polar bears declined by 22 percent. Why? A study in 2007 linked the decline to the sea ice breaking up earlier each spring, which shortens the time bears have to hunt on the ice.
The shift to warmer weather is altering the bears’ behavior. Their struggle to adapt as quickly as their world is changing around them has made polar bears one of the species most vulnerable to a warming climate.

They are the clumsiest of all birds on land, they live most of their lives underwater and form huge colonies that protect each other's babies and keep from freezing. These are the penguins, one of earth's most fascinating and weird looking animals.
A court in the Netherlands Wednesday upheld a 2011 decision to transfer Morgan, a female orca rescued in a stranding off the Dutch coast, to an entertainment park in the Canary Islands, Spain, where she will remain indefinitely.
Killer whales belong in the open ocean, not stuck living in cramped tanks performing tricks for human amusement.
More than 2,100 dolphins and whales are being held in captivity at 343 facilities in 63 countries around the world, with the highest numbers of dolphinariums located in Japan (57), China (44), the United States (34), Russia (24), and Mexico (24), according to the Born Free Foundation.
This week, a vote on a California bill that would ban orca captivity was delayed by 18 months, pending an interim study. But, if it passes, California will join a growing list of U.S. states and localities and at least 14 countries that have outlawed the captive display of orcas, dolphins, and in some cases, all wild animals.
Herewith, all the locales around the world that forbid the keeping of orcas in tanks for the amusement of paying customers.

If passed, the bill would be the most comprehensive protection law for captive orcas in the United States in more than 40 years.
In a surprising move that is sure to send shock waves across the entire captive whale and dolphin industry, a California lawmaker will propose legislation to outlaw Shamu shows at SeaWorld San Diego.
Seal of Approval
Come and join me and the gang as we get the seal of approval as we visit the Farne Islands in Northumberland in October '13. We've been visiting here for the last six years to say hello to the seal pups and we've never had this much interaction before - they were everywhere and all over us.
The Beautiful Colors of Coral Reefs
Coral reefs are underwater structures made from calcium carbonate secreted by corals. Coral reefs are colonies of tiny animals found in marine waters that contain few nutrients. Most coral reefs are built from stony corals, which in turn consist of polyps that cluster in groups.
