What Rely on for Marine Wildlife? | THISDAYLIVE - THISDAY Newspapers

Ugo Aliogo writes that colossal waste deposits in Nigeria’s territorial waters constitute a big threat to the survival of marine life. “From a particular report, it was prominent that when the belly of a dead shark was cut open, home-made wastes were discovered inside the belly. As a diver, he has been involved in diving voyages in the Mediterranean Sea, Red Sea, the Creek of Omar and others. His worry is that the huge deposit of waste in the ocean has constituted a big threat to the survival of marine life. Thalassic waste is a worldwide challenge. While some countries especially tourists’ destination centres in the Northern Hemisphere are making frantic efforts to clean-cut up the ocean. From his diving voyages, he revealed that there is a large stretch of land inside the Atlantic Ocean with a huge deposit of plastic wastes unattended to. If Nigeria is committed in playing a r in the global ocean cleanup campaign, Alonge urged... His argument is premised on the fact that these materials constitute irritation to marine life and coastal communities. In 2015, he participated in an ocean clean up exercise in the Red Sea in Egypt with a group of divers from there the world. They used sack bags to pick up the wastes inside the sea. During the exercise the group brought out the tyre of a heavy devoir truck, pipes, cigarette boxes, plastics cups and others, from a site adjudged to be one of the most beautiful diving sites in the community. The spirited efforts of these individuals are an indication that the desire to clean up the ocean should not be left to government. Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs) and organised unique groups can play roles in the campaign. However, as a country there needs to be concerted drive through policy implementation to keep our coastal areas immaculate and safe. “In order to play our part to save the ocean campaign, we need to organise a proper campaign to re-orientate the people’s minds especially on the use of plastics. Cleaning of the the depths has to be done by the federal and state governments in conjunction with body of divers. “In Nigeria, we don’t have enough divers though we have a diving club in Lagos. But more diving clubs should be established and direction should show renewed commitment to supporting scuba diving. Government should subsidise scuba diving for interested individuals because the training fee is expensive. To start a process in scuba diving it costs N300, 000. “Plastics production companies must play a role in cleaning the ocean. government should play its r especially by holding these companies to task and Nigerians should improve their wastes disposal culture,” he stated. The United Nations Environment Inhabitants (UNEP) recently observed that up to 80 per cent of all litters in our oceans are made up of plastics. Unfortunately, this abnormality is caused by humans, leaving the zillions at the mercy of man’s discretion to save marine lives or not. UNEP estimated that 15 per cent of marine litter floats on the sea’s integument, 15 per cent remains in the water column and 70 per cent rests on the seabed. A study revealed that 5. 25 million pliable particles, weighing 268,940 tonnes in total, are currently floating in the world’s oceans. With the increasing rise of marine fouling, the MacArthur Foundation in a study noted that the world is producing 20 times more plastics than 40 years ago. The negative really is that yearly more than eight million tonnes of plastic end up in the oceans, causing damage to marine wildlife, fisheries, tourism and ocean-going ecosystem. The study further sheds light on the fact that only less than 14 per cent of all plastics are recyclable and there is need to setup under the aegis technological mechanism to deal with the remaining 86 per cent which could create $80bn-$120 billion in... Over 80 per cent of salt-water pollution comes from land based activities, including plastic bags, water bottles, cups, cans and other debris which register the ocean through deliberate dumping or run-off through rivers and drains. Ocean pollution is caused by a number of factors such as the drink flood mining, sewage, large scale of oil spills, land runoffs, and toxic chemical from. Source: www.thisdaylive.com

Ruddy Initiate-Dove These small pigeons were everywhere in the early morning at Hacienda Baru, to the south in Costa Rica. Night falls in the tropics like a leaf in the rainforest. Really, it doesn't, but I thought that might sound profound or poetic or plausible. It actually falls more like a broken branch or a piece of manure thrown at you by an irritated white-faced monkey: hard and fast.
