Sharks in some form or another have been in our oceans for up to 450 million years. They are natural predators, with a great diversity amongst them. There are over 500 Species of sharks, and each of them has carved their specialist way of surviving in their native habitat. From extended tails that whip and stun prey, to bodies designed to blend in resulting in the ultimate ambush predators. Sharks are the best at what they do. So why is that? From a biological perspective evolved traits have allowed them to carve their way to the top. So what's so interesting about their biology? Read on and you might learn something new.
Kelp or often referred to as sea kelp is a type of algae or seaweed. Though it looks like an underwater tree, kelp is a type of brown algae and belongs to several species of the order Laminariales.
So by now all of us should be familiar with the COVID-19 virus, its had the whole planet on lockdown for the last few months, its sadly killed over 550K individuals worldwide. Its changed everything from the way we shop, work, travel and live.
The ocean is so much more than just a large body of water that coves this planet like the lid to my lunch box. It shields us, helps us, feeds us, allows us to travel, its the reason mankind has advanced so far from those troglodytes in a cave to Gen Z’s typing on their macs. Its where we began, its where we ‘might’ end up. Its beauty is unchallenged throughout the universe. Maybe none of this matter to you, but if I’ve already struck a chord with you, read on as you might learn something new.
Is eating tuna worth it? I say no, but I know others who say different. So here are some of the reasons why I don't eat tuna, and why I think you shouldn't eat tuna either. You can thank me later, or you can cast them aside. Either way, it's up to you.
Sea turtles have been in our oceans for over 100 million years. They are fantastic navigators; they swim great distances between feeding and nesting grounds. They are elegant, beautiful, and adapted perfectly to live in the oceans. Aside from the cuteness and charm that comes with sea turtles, their biology has some very interesting quirks to it, some good, some bad. Yet it’s their biology that helps conservationists and scientists better conserve these species, as they need the help.
