If you love Dolphins;You will love this vid@sea world

Dozens of animal activists have swarmed a dolphin show at Sea World, on the Gold Coast, this morning.

Video captured by Kaylee Hallam shows the group of protesters storming down the stairs of the Dolphin Cove just after 11am with banners featuring anti-Sea World messages, including “SeaWorld equals slave world” and “captivity is cruelty”.

“This is not a natural environment for the dolphins… there is no excuse for animal abuse,” one male protester shouted through a megaphone.

“We’re speaking for the love of dolphins,” he said, eliciting audible boos from the crowd.
The present activities regarding our interaction with animals is getting really old,so its time we sheep pull back and work on a new future with Mother Nature.

Project Eyes on the Seas

The Pew Charitable Trusts launched a groundbreaking technology platform that will help authorities monitor, detect, and respond to illicit fishing activity across the world’s oceans.  Project Eyes on the Seas combines satellite monitoring of the oceans with other information, such as fishing-vessel databases and oceanographic data, to help authorities detect suspicious fishing activity far more efficiently than has been possible in the past— often in near-real time. This video was updated with a newer version on Dec. 8, 2015.

Even with gains in ship identification, port protocols, and coordinated policing, authorities need cost-effective ways to monitor national waters and scan the vast oceans for suspicious activity. Launched in 2015 with the U.K.-based innovation center Satellite Applications Catapult, Pew’s Project Eyes on the Seas provides a way to do that. The joint project helps fill in gaps in other monitoring platforms by combining and integrating multiple layers of data to make sure vessels can be seen whether they are properly transmitting their positions or not.

The system combines data from multiple sources—including space-based radar and photographic imagery, vessels’ electronic transponders, and databases of authorized and blacklisted vessels and oceanographic and environmental data—to help authorities detect questionable fishing operations. Governments can take a proactive approach to combat illegal, unreported, and unregulated (IUU) fishing because Project Eyes on the Seas provides critical information to countries that lack the capacity to build such monitoring systems on their own.

The U.K. government is using the system to monitor marine reserves around the Pitcairn and Ascension islands in the southern Pacific. Several members of the Polynesian Leaders Group—Niue, Tonga, Samoa, and the Cook Islands—have signed on as well. They plan to use the integrated monitoring platform to supplement ongoing surveillance efforts in their waters. We also are in talks with other governments interested in benefitting from the project’s capabilities. Continuing the initial focus of this work, we are committed to making this service available to even the most resource-poor countries, many of which are plagued by illegal fishing precisely because they lack the capability to effectively patrol their waters.

What’s next?

In 2016, Pew and the Satellite Applications Catapult will work to further develop this platform so that information can be available to those who need it most. Our vision is a system through which any fisheries authority, or any market entity, can have access to reliable data that can be used to make smart decisions. While this would spur enforcement actions, it would help businesses seeking a robust traceability system for their seafood products, and it would also protect the market from illegally caught fish. 

Global Fishing Watch – The project

Hundreds of millions of people depend on the ocean for their livelihoods and many more rely on the ocean for food. However, the world’s oceans are threatened by global overfishing, illegal fishing and habitat destruction. Their sustainability depends on action by governments, fishery management organizations, citizens and the fishing industry itself.
This public beta version of Global Fishing Watch is available to anyone with an Internet connection and allows users to monitor when and where commercial fishingicon info is occurring around the world.
    Citizens can see for themselves how their fisheries are being effectively managed and hold leaders accountable for long-term sustainability.
    Seafood suppliers can monitor the vessels they buy fish from.
    Journalists and the public can act as watchdogs to improve the sustainable management of global fisheries.
    Responsible fishermen can show they are adhering to the law.
    Researchers can address important fishery management questions.
We invite all fishery stakeholders to explore the Map. Global Fishing Watch is not an advocacy or enforcement agency, but a transparency tool to help enable awareness and discussion around fishery issues.

OCEAN WARRIORS ANd Fishing SlAves at work IN THE OCEANS

​From Executive Producers Robert Redford and Paul Allen, Animal Planet premieres OCEAN WARRIORS, a gripping new series that propels viewers to the edge of a vast frontier and a battle critical to Earth’s survival. Impossible to control or police, the oceans that cover three fifths of the globe and border 146 countries are home to a new breed of outlaw mercenaries who threaten not just marine life but the entire planet. A six-part series, OCEAN WARRIORS features unlikely heroes with a passion for justice as they track down these criminals in high-adrenaline missions, and premieres Sunday, Dec. 4 with back to back episodes at 9PM and 10PM ET/PT, continuing on Dec. 11 and Dec. 18.
Each fast-paced episode of OCEAN WARRIORS puts the offenders in the sights of dedicated activists, scientists and investigators who put their lives on the line every day to stop those who are wreaking havoc on our oceans, from Tanzania to Thailand to Antarctica and beyond. Series episodes will include Enforcement, Who’s the Bad Guy, Engage the Enemy, Truth and Lies, Life and Death and Perseverance.
The young men and women of the Sea Shepherds chase a notorious, battle-hardened poaching ship through the dense ice of the Antarctic Sea despite the very real threat of violence and hazardous waters. In Tanzania, a conservation biologist strives to save the coral reefs from blast fishing, whose explosive impact could wipe out the marine life that sustains 18 million people. In the Pacific, Greenpeace patrols the waters for illegal shark fishing, exploring deep within a commercial vessel to discover a prolific and illegal bounty. An environmental journalist goes to Thailand, where illegal poachers are devastating a $7 billion national fishing industry as they pillage the ancestral fishing grounds. And, tragically, our vigilantes discover a vast human trafficking network of fishing slaves that extends from AFRICA to Indonesia. This new generation of enforcers are mobilized around the globe and ready to deal with those who run rampant across our oceans.
OCEAN WARRIORS is a co-production between Animal Planet, Sundance Productions, Brick City TV and Vulcan Productions. For Sundance Productions, Robert Redford and Laura Michalchyshyn serve as executive producers; for Vulcan Productions, Paul Allen, Carole Tomko, Jody Gottlieb and Rocky Collins serve as executive producers; and for Brick City TV, Mark Benjamin and Marc Levin serve as executive producers.
